9mm splenic artery aneurysm is something to worry about ?

Possibly: Most splenic artery aneurysms are not at any significant risk of rupture & bleeding until they reach around 20 mm so most vascular surgeons recommend following them annually until they reach that size, then repairing them at that time (most often with embolization or stenting rather than surgery).

What does redemonstration of a patent splenic artery aneurysm maximum dimension on contrast enhanced images is 19mm mean?

What does redemonstration of a patent splenic artery aneurysm maximum dimension on contrast enhanced images is 19mm mean?

This can rupture, which is sometimes fatal. 19mm isn't very big, but it's big enough to do something about it. We now have endovascular repair methods, so you wouldn't need surgery. But I recommend you take care of it! ...Read more
