Endovascular embolisation of Giant Ruptured Proximal Splenic Arterial Pseudoaneurysm Using Microcoils & Glue: Case Report
Abstract: Splenic artery aneurysms (SAA) are third most common intra-abdominal aneurysm (after aneurysms of the abdominal aorta and iliac arteries). A splenic artery aneurysm larger than 3 cm is even rare. Splenic artery aneurysms are fatal vascular lesions if ruptured. The incidence of rupture is increased in larger aneurysms. Transcatheter arterial embolization is an alternative method of treatment in a patient with splenic arterial aneurysm which has relative lower morbidity and mortality than surgical procedures. Here, we report a case of giant ruptured proximal splenic artery pseudoaneurysm detected by contrast enhanced computed tomography (CECT) & referred to Interventional Radiology for Transcatheter arterial embolisation.
