Brain Aneurysm Awareness
Awareness of brain aneurysms is critical to saving lives and better patient outcomes. The incidence of brain aneurysms is higher than most people realize. About 6 million people in the United States – or 1 in every 50 people in this country – have an unruptured brain aneurysm. The annual rate of ruptured aneurysms in the United States is about 8 to 10 in 100,000 people, or about 30,000 people a year. Every 18 minutes, a brain aneurysm ruptures. The Brain Aneurysm Foundation is working hard to change these statistics, and we need your help. Awareness matters!
