    Kris Dim

    Anyone remember this pro BB? Shorter Asian guy, Super wide clavicals and awesome shoulders.

    Some of you may already be aware but he collapsed and almost died due to a torn aorta, does anyone think this was in any way steroid related? After his surgery he went in for a routune check up and actually had to go back under the knife due to the aorta swelling and becoming in jeopardy of tearing again.

    What do you guys think? Was the gear causing this or just a genetic defect?

    He came back in 2009 in the 202 division, got the huge scar and everything. Genetics or drugs being the cause? likely the combination of both.

    There is no way to know what really caused his AAA (acute aortic aneurysm). The condition is caused by a weakness in the inner lining of the aorta that tears away from the outer vessel wall (aortic dissection). Now you have blood being forced into this space created by the tear. When this happens, you'll sometimes notice a pulsating mass (the aneurysm) if you press hard enough on the abdomen. If this aneurism bursts, you're dead in a matter of seconds from blood loss.

    He likely had the weak spot in his aorta from birth, but sped up the condition's onset by using gear and lifting heavy (higher blood pressure and cardiac output).
    Nobody can say for sure that the AAS caused it (or how much it accelerated the event), but it sure didn't help.

    Well, its not really a heart condition, since it is the main artery of the body and usually some distance from the heart. But yeah, it is the cardiovascular system
