De Bakey and Cooley did the first successful operation for a visceral artery aneurysm (VAA) in 1953. They are relatively rare and
the risk of rupture is associated with high mortality .The majority of patients are asymptomatic prior to rupture and the main
indication of elective treatment is size, now a days endovascular procedures as embolization or covered stents have increased the
treatment options available to comorbid patients not suitable for open repair. VAAs are seen more often these days with the more
widespread use of computed tomography. Coil embolization techniques are often used to “trap’” the aneurysm between coils placed
proximally and distally within the normal part of the parent artery. This technique is well suited for aneurysms in larger arteries
but requires adequate collateral circulation to the end organ. VAA can often be excluded from the circulation in this way by coil
embolization of first the distal and then the proximal segment of the parent artery. Modern endovascular techniques with promising
short- and long-term results could broaden indications to treat asymptomatic VAA. The promising results of endovascular treatment in
elective settings could lead to broader indications, thus reducing life-threatening rupture. The advances with embolization techniques
in the last decades are quite evident, and the field of endovascular surgery and minimally invasive techniques has accompanied this
development, aiming at overcoming its limitations.
