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.

An estimated 6.5 million people in the United States have an unruptured brain aneurysm, or 1 in 50 people. The annual rate of rupture is approximately 8 – 10 per 100,000 people. About 30,000 people in the United States suffer a brain aneurysm rupture each year. A brain aneurysm ruptures every 18 minutes.

It may also burst or rupture, spilling blood into the surrounding tissue (called a hemorrhage).

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has an incidence of over 500,000 cases per year, and is the leading cause of disability and death in children and young adults in the United States.The annual cost of TBI, including direct costs and lost income, is estimated to be above $25 billion.

Elective aneurysm surgery has been demonstrated to be cost effective, provided that the surgical morbidity and mortality remain at low levels, that patient life expectancy is at least 13 years, and that the patient’s quality of life is decreased by the knowledge of the aneurysm (King et al. 1995).
