Visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs) are a rare condition, in case of a rupture they have a high mortality rate up to 70%. Visceral artery aneurysms are seen more often these days with the more widespread use of computed tomography and angiography. There are various options for treating VAAs; open surgical repair, endovascular treatment, and laparoscopic surgery. We report 5 cases of visceral aneurysms, all treated differently-ligation, aneurysmectomy (with splenectomy), emergency and elective coil embolization, and conservatively. We will further give a review of the literature on etiology, diagnosis, and treatment options.
