Abstract

Celiac axis (CA) aneurysm is a rare vascular condition, consisting of only 3.6-4% of visceral artery aneurysms but is frequently life threatening and can result in death. A celiomesenteric trunk (CMT) is an anatomic anomaly in which the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries arise from a common trunk. This structure accounts for only 1% of visceral artery variation, and a celiac artery aneurysm at a CMT is exceptionally rare. Here, we report the case of a 62-year-old woman with a celiac artery aneurysm at a CMT. Endovascular repair was completed using a bare metal stent-assisted coil. Satisfactory results were observed at the 10-month follow-up. To our knowledge, this is the first case reported of bare metal stent-assisted coil repair of a CA aneurysm at a CMT.
