He died from an aortic rupture am I right?
I'm not sure if they know the reason behind the rupture - there are many that can damage the integrity of the vessel wall and predispose it to rupture - stressful blood flow, jet lesions, atherosclerosis, an aneurysm - the list goes on. But most of these would be very difficult to diagnose without symptoms. Sometimes aneurysm can be diagnosed on radiographs but it would have to be an excellent quality radiograph and a big aneuryms so the chances are slim. Posted via Mobile Device
