We herein report the case of a symptomatic splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) diagnosed in a 65-year-old woman.

Abstract

We herein report the case of a symptomatic splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) diagnosed in a 65-year-old woman. Endoluminal exclusion was considered as first option, but the potential risk of postoperative splenic infarction, postsplenectomy thrombocytosis and immunodeficiency in an otherwise healthy patient raised the possibility to carry out a surgical procedure of vascular reconstruction using the robotic device Da Vinci® Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Sunnyvale, CA, USA). We performed the resection of the aneurysm and the continuity of the splenic artery was restored by end-to-end anastomosis.
