A 45-year-old female asked:

How dangerous is a systolic pressure of 156 when i have 3 brain aneurysms, 2 of which are not coiled or clipped?

Risk is increased: Certainly your BP should be managed aggressively and patients are strongly encouraged to stop smoking as this clearly increases the risk of rupture.
Dr. Calvin Weisberger

Blood pressure: Your pressure shouldn't get higher, above present level risk rises.
Dr. Joseph Accurso

That systolic BP: Is too high for anyone, and the presence of aneurysms carries an even higher risk. Please see your doctor and get your BP back down to appropriate levels.
