CABRAL, Dennis; AYALA, Robert; DIAZ, Jorge Ruiz  and  KOSTINCHOK, Michel. Aneurysm of the splenic artery. About a case. Cir. parag. [online]. 2020, vol.44, n.3, pp.33-34. ISSN 2307-0420.

In vascular abdominal pathology, abdominal aneurysms located in the splenic artery are infrequent. Being mostly asymptomatic, when they present symptoms they can be nonspecific or present as acute hemorrhagic abdomen due to rupture of the aneurysm to the retroperitoneum or neighboring organs. A case of a patient with splenic artery aneurysm will be presented below and the literature will be reviewed with the aim of showing diagnostic and therapeutic alternatives.

Keywords : Aneurysm; splenic artery; laparoscopy.
