Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The Pipeline Embolization Device (ev3 Endovascular Inc, Plymouth, Minnesota) is a new endovascular device designed to exclude suitable intracranial aneurysms. A 56-year-old woman presented with a symptomatic 4.1-cm splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) that was successfully managed with a two-staged treatment plan involving selective segmental splenic artery embolization and subsequent deployment of a Pipeline Embolization Device across the aneurysm neck to exclude the aneurysm and maintain splenic perfusion.
