Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is a rare condition, mostly treated with surgery. Usually an incidental finding, prevalence varies from 0.04 to 0.10%. If left untreated, SAA carries a high risk of rupture and high mortality. We describe a 53-year-old male patient with SAA, where a balloon-expandable, polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent was used for treatment. The stent remains patent without any leakage after 2 years.
