Visceral artery aneurysm is an uncommon pathology, with a potential for rupture. Splenic artery aneurysms (SAA) are most commonly (60%) associated with a high mortality rate of 25% in case of aneurysm rupture. This increases disproportionately to 75% among pregnant women with fetal mortality of 95%. Although this is a rare event, because of the associated catastrophic consequences, prompt management of splenic artery aneurysms (SAA) is of prime importance. This systematic review provides up-to-date information about the management of splenic artery aneurysms in pregnancy.
