Abstract

Aneurysmal disease of the hepatic artery is a rare and potentially life-threatening entity. Aneurysms occur anywhere along the hepatic artery and its branches, but they have a predilection for occurring as a solitary lesion of the common or right hepatic artery. Diffuse intrahepatic hepatic artery aneurysm is the rarest form and is especially challenging. Treatment of these lesions has been described in only a few case reports. We present a patient with ruptured intrahepatic hepatic artery aneurysms treated by percutaneous transcatheter embolization.
