What is Aneurysm ?
In a recent press briefing, DOH Officer-in-Charge Maria Rosario Vergeire explained that aneurysm is a condition in which the arteries of a person weaken. He said that arteries carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the different parts of the human body.
Vergeire also said that aneurysms can develop in the heart, abdomen and legs.
“Most of these aneurysms are unreported or undocumented kasi usually ‘pag dumating sa ospital, it’s already at that late stage hindi na nakakagawa ng scanning na kailangan to confirm that it is really aneurysm,” the DOH top official said.
