We report the first case of coil embolization using the "modified neck remodeling technique" in the management of a splenic artery aneurysm. This technique was feasible due to the unique and complex anatomy of the aneurysm. This condition has been largely treated by vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists; however, this patient was referred to the interventional cardiologists for endovascular coiling.
