What Are Symptoms of Splenic Artery Aneurysm?

Q:
What are symptoms of splenic artery aneurysm?

A:
Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is a rare condition, and is an aneurysm formed by the expansion of the splenic artery.

There are no obvious symptoms before the rupture of the splenic aneurysm, and the discomfort of the left upper abdomen occasionally appears.

Once there are symptoms such as obvious pain in the left upper abdomen or left rib area, nausea, and vomiting, it often indicates that the aneurysm is ruptured.

After rupture, there was severe pain in the upper abdomen, radiation pain in the left shoulder, hypotension, and shock.

Splenic artery aneurysm can be complicated by rupture resulting in hypovolemic shock, which could be fatal if not treated properly.

If you suspect you have the above symptoms, you should go to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Key words: splenic artery aneurysm; symptoms of splenic artery aneurysm.
