PMID:  8268094     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Giant aneurysms of the splenic artery are uncommon. The mean size of splenic artery aneurysms is reported to be 2.1 cm; they are rarely larger than 3 cm. We present two cases in which the splenic artery aneurysm was larger than 8 cm, discuss the management and operative approach to these infrequently encountered entities, and provide a brief review of the relevant literature.
