Compression of important organs by the solidified sac may also induce dangerous and even fatal complications. And even under the most favourable circumstances, the occurrence of aneurism of a large and K2 important artery proves the existence of such a diseased condition of the arterial coats as will render the patient's life ever after a precarious one. Notwithstanding the great relief to the symptoms in almost every case, it is obvious that anything beyond this--anything at all approaching to a cure--can only be expected in sacculated aneurisms, and chiefly in comparatively young individuals, and in cases more or less of a traumatic character, that is, produced by unusual exertion, as evincing a possibly less seriously diseased condition of the arterial coats than where the aneurism has occurred more gradually, and, as it were, spontaneously.
