About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Aortic aneurysm usually refers to the likely outcome of Aortic aneurysm. The prognosis of Aortic aneurysm may include the duration of Aortic aneurysm, chances of complications of Aortic aneurysm, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Aortic aneurysm, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Aortic aneurysm. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
