Can high blood pressure cause an abdominal aortic aneurysm?

Q: I had low BP until extreme stress created high BP. Is it possible that high BP could have created an Abdominal Aortic aneurysm that was treated using a Stent?

A: High blood pressure is known as the silent killer because damage is done to blood vessels often before a person is aware they have a problem. Left untreated, high blood pressure can cause arteriosclerosis and aneurysms.
