Gastroepiploic arterial aneurysms (GEAA) represent a very rare disorder [1, 2]. The risk of GEAA rupture is high, and it is associated with a high mortality rate [3]. GEAAs are usually identified following rupture or are incidentally diagnosed. In emergency, an open surgical approach to treat GEAAs has been most frequently reported [4]. Alternatively, if the patient is hemodynamically stable, an angiography and embolization can be attempted. Herein we report the case of a patient presenting with two fissurated GEAAs that were successfully excised laparoscopically after failure of the endovascular approach.

Abstract

Gastroepiploic arterial aneurysms (GEAA) represent a very rare disorder [1, 2]. The risk of GEAA rupture is high, and it is associated with a high mortality rate [3]. GEAAs are usually identified following rupture or are incidentally diagnosed. In emergency, an open surgical approach to treat GEAAs has been most frequently reported [4]. Alternatively, if the patient is hemodynamically stable, an angiography and embolization can be attempted. Herein we report the case of a patient presenting with two fissurated GEAAs that were successfully excised laparoscopically after failure of the endovascular approach.
