2. Ruptured Aneurysm

An aneurysm will cause the walls of the blood vessel to become even weaker still. If there is still enough blood pressure in the affected blood vessel then the pressure could cause the walls of the blood vessel to burst. When this happens, it is known as a ruptured aneurysm.

A ruptured brain aneurysm will cause internal bleeding in the brain. This, in turn, will result in a hemorrhagic stroke or a subarachnoid hemorrhage depending on where exactly the bleeding is. These are very dangerous conditions and the patient should be found medical assistance without hesitation. It will often be necessary to manage an unruptured aneurysm to help prevent it from rupturing.
