Aorta is the biggest vein in human body. It transfers arterial blood from the heart to all organs which makes it “main blood line”. Considering height and weight of the person, it carries 3 to 6-7 lt. of blood in a minute. There is a certain pressure (80 - 140 mmHg) while transferring the blood depending on heart’s beat rate and structure. We call it tension. Aorta may enlarge silently in the body due to various reasons. It should be diagnosed early.
