This medical exhibit depicts an abdominal aortic aneurysm with subsequent fatal rupture using four illustrations.  The first graphic pictures an anterior (front) cut-away view of the abdominal cavity showing the appearance of the aortic aneurysm. The second and third images show the aneurysm progressing from a slow leak to a complete rupture and massive hemorrhage.  The final image depicts a correct surgical repair of the aorta using a synthetic graft material.
