An aneurysm is an abnormal bulge or ballooning in the wall of a blood vessel. Dr. Bernard Bendok claims a ruptured aneurysm is a medical emergency situation that can cause dangerous blood loss in the brain. Dr. Bendok says 1 to 2 percent of the population have aneurysms, and only a small portion of that group will experience a tear. People that have a family history of aneurysms, have polycystic kidney disease, connective tissue disease, and people that smoke go to increased risk of tear, and should take into consideration screening.
