Aneurysmal dilatation of the visceral arteries is quite a rare disease in vascular surgery (only 0.1-2% of cases per 100000 population). Nevertheless, for patients with this pathology, timely diagnostics is very important, since there is a high risk of sudden bleeding into the retroperitoneal space associated with a rupture of aneurysm. This paper presents a clinical case of successful endovascular treatment of a giant splenic artery aneurysm by its embolization with coils. Our experience shows that endovascular treatment is a valid alternative to open surgery for patients with splenic artery aneurysm. It is believed that transcatheter embolization of visceral artery aneurysms is the method of choice for this pathology.
