Extraorganic Hepatic Artery Aneurysm: Failure of Transcatheter Embolization

Received14 Oct 1996
Accepted27 Mar 1997


Hepatic artery aneurysm (HAA) was diagnosed in a 62-year-old man who was a poor candidate for surgery because of severe liver cirrhosis and diabetes mellitus. Two attempts to occlude the HAA by transcatheter embolization failed because of recanalization of the aneurysm. Moreover, aneurysmal dilatation of the superior mesenteric artery and the left renal artery developed and progressed. Both the literature and the present case show that an individual approach to treatment of extraorganic HAA should be chosen in dependantan location and anatomy of the lesion.
