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 6.5 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!
