Northland artist benefits from innovative aneurysm treatment


Arna Rennan listened to her worries, and she’s glad she did…For Rennan, an artist who emigrated from Norway to Northeastern Minnesota as a child, her worries led to the discovery of two dangerous aneurysms in her brain. Her desire to destroy the aneurysms led her to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for an innovative procedure that was nonexistent a few years ago…“When an aneurysm bursts, quite often the consequences are dire,” said Dr. Guiseppe Lanzino, the Mayo Clinic physician who treated Rennan, in a telephone interview. He said about 2 percent of the adult population has aneurysms, but most never grow and never burst.
