44 skos:definition An aneurysm is an abnormal, localized dilatation – or bulge – of a blood vessel, which results from weakening of the vessel wall. The thin and weakened vessel wall is at increased risk of dissection or rupture, which can be fatal. Aneurisms can be the consequence of hereditary or acquired conditions.

88 skos:definition Calcification is the deposition of calcium into the neointima (within atherosclerotic plaque) and/or the tunica media (the medial smooth muscle layer) of the blood vessels, and can occur with conditions such as atherosclerosis, chronic kidney disease and diabetes mellitus. Vascular calcification results in vascular stiffening and affects atherosclerotic plaque stability.

99 skos:definition Hypertension is high blood pressure. It is generally defined in adults as systolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 140mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 90mmHg. Rarely associated with obvious symptoms, hypertension can result in heart disease, vascular disease, stroke and/or chronic kidney disease
