Aneurysms are a serious and potentially fatal health concern caused by a bulging or ballooning blood vessel. If aneurysms rupture or leak, they can cause internal bleeding that is life-threatening and requires immediate medical care. Most aneurysms never rupture, but should be treated to prevent the possibility in the future.
Surgery is required to treat an aneurysm. The life-saving procedure can cost upwards of $80,000 in the United States, making it too expensive for many patients. Luckily, patients can obtain the same standard of care at hospitals around the world at a more affordable cost. In many other countries, patients can save up to 75 percent of the procedure cost while still receiving the highest quality of care at fully accredited hospitals staffed with physicians trained in the US.
