Visceral artery aneurysms (VAAs) are a rare entity; however, aneurysm rupture can be a catastrophic complication, which may lead to a mortality rate up to 90%. With the advent of endovascular technology and rapid development of endovascular materials, tailored endovascular therapy including embolization and placement of stents or stent grafts according to clinical presentation, anatomy of the aneurysm, and downstream organ, has become a promising alternative to open surgery. This review article summarizes the current state-of-the-art on endovascular treatment of VAAs.
