Article title

Surgical Treatment of a Ruptured Giant Renal Artery Aneurysm - Case Report and Literature Review


Title variants

Languages of publication



Renal artery aneurysms are the second most common visceral artery aneurysms after splenic artery aneurysms, and before hepatic artery aneurysms. The study presented a case of a ruptured giant right renal artery aneurysm in a female patient. The presented case is worth mentioning, due to the giant size of the lesion. The diameter of the aneurysm exceeded 10 cm. Available literature data mentioned single reports of such large aneurysms located in the renal arteries. In spite of the fact that renal artery aneurysms are the second most common visceral artery aneurysms, their management is accompanied by some controversy. Literature data mentioned the dominance of endovascular techniques. However, surgical treatment remains to be the most effective and radical method.
