We present a patient with a splenic artery pseudoaneurysm (SAPA) treated with placement of self-expandable stent-grafts. The procedure was complicated by stent-graft migration, but successful management resulted in lasting exclusion of the SAPA, while the patency of the splenic artery was preserved. This is the first report of self-expandable stent-graft treatment of SAPA.
