10] reported the interventional radiological therapy of HP by implantation of an uncoated metal Palmaz stent across the aneurysmal segment of splenic artery
Complications of splenic artery
embolization have been very briefly discussed in this paper due to word count limitations.
However, punctate calcifications near the pancreas can be confused with splenic artery
The left gastroepiploic artery branches off of the splenic artery
Predictably, arterial aneurysms often occur at secondary or tertiary branch points from the aorta; 60% involve the splenic artery
, 22% renal, and 10% to 20% hepatic, with common celiac and mesenteric arteries less common (3).
We present a critically ill patient with hemolytic anemia that underwent splenic artery
embolization as a bridging therapy.
7) Angio-embolisation of the splenic artery
is a well-described modality of treatment in the literature on adult patients.
The causes of compression include the normal organs or structures (the splenic artery
, spleen, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, colon and vertebra), and the extraluminal pathologic lesions (liver cyst, splenomegaly, splenic artery
aneurysm, pancreatic pseudocyst, enlarged lymph nodes, and renal cyst).
The donor splenic artery
and vein are anastomosed to the recipient external iliac vessels.
The transverse mesocolon was intact with its anterior layer reflecting onto the lesser sac in the form of a peritoneal reflection covering the anterior aspects of splenic artery
