Abstract

A case of a 78-year-old woman who presented with hemorrhagic shock and abdominal pain, and who was subsequently found to have a ruptured aneurysm of the right gastroepiploic artery, is presented. She underwent open surgical resection of the aneurysm without any significant postoperative complication. A brief review of splanchnic artery aneurysms with regard to their incidence, presentation and approaches for repair is also presented.
