Description

This collection of stories won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting. The authors did in-depth reporting about aortic aneurysms, a dangerous bulge in an important artery. This condition causes 25,000 - 40,000 deaths a year, most of which are preventable. Conventional medical wisdom says that such aneurysms are rare, but this investigation proved otherwise. The investigation found that there is available technology to ease this condition and save lives, but it is not being used effectively because physicians misdiagnos the problem.
