An aortic aneurysm is a bulge that develops in the walls of a major blood artery that transports blood from the heart to the body. Aortic aneurysms are classified into two types: abdominal aortic aneurysms and thoracic aortic aneurysms. The former happens in the section of the aorta that runs through the belly, whereas the latter occurs in the section of the aorta that runs through the chest cavity.

The illness increases the likelihood of developing a tear in the inner layer of the aortic wall. The risks of this condition may be lowered by monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol levels and quitting smoking. DJ Mighty Mouse’s medical history is presently missing, thus it is unknown how long he was afflicted with this ailment.
