|Description:||Blood group O and to a lesser extent blood group B have a greater risk of cerebral aneurysm. This risk appears to be related to lack of sufficient blood clotting factors. In a study of 150 patients with arteriovenous aneurysm, there was a significant absence of aneurysm sufferers who were blood group A, versus an excess of groups O and B. This association was highly significant for men, but was even more significant for women. (1)|
In another study, the 482 strokes which were the result of cranial bleeding there was a significantly higher occurrence of patients who were blood groups O and B over those who were blood groups A and AB. (2)
An older (1967) showed a higher rate of groups B and O amongn 150 Swedish patients who had suffered cerebral aneurysms (bleeding into the cranial cavity). This again points to the lower clotting abilities of groups O and B blood over A and AB. (3)
