what causes an aortic aneurysm?

My aunt had an abdominal aortic aneurysm which was repaired with a graft. How common is this, and what causes it?

edit: adding some information- in her case, it presented with abdominal and leg pain, and upon discovery of the aneurysm surgery was done almost immediately.
