Celiac artery aneurysms are extremely rare vascular lesions that are frequently asymptomatic. When present, clinical manifestations are often vague and unspecific. The most serious complication of celiac artery aneurysms is rupture with a mortality rate up to 100%. Elective surgical repair, with a mortality rate of 5%, is recommended except when operative risks contraindicate abdominal surgery. The authors present three clinical cases of celiac artery aneurysms treated by open surgery and discuss the surgical options adopted.
