A new research has revealed that women who smoke and have high blood pressure are 20 times more likely to have a brain haemorrhage than non-smoking men who have healthy blood pressure.

The study carried out by Helsinki University Central Hospital and Australian School of Advanced Medicine, shows that the risk of a haemorrhage varies, depending on certain risk factors such as gender, smoking and blood pressure.

The study further shows that women, smokers and people with high blood pressure are the most likely to see their aneurysm rupture.

The most common cause of a haemorrhage is a ruptured aneurysm but some aneurysms have been discovered not to rupture at all, and doctors do not have a way of telling which one will rupture and which one will not.
