MACHADO, Alexandre de Tarso et al. Endovascular treatment of hemorrhage due to splenic artery injury in acute pancreatitis: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.1, pp.61-65.  Epub Apr 30, 2010. ISSN 1677-5449.

Splenic artery injury is a rare complication related to trauma, iatrogenic injury, and pancreatitis. Hemostasis can be made by identification of the vascular lesion through selective catheterism followed by embolization of the bleeding vessel. We report a case of a patient with biliary pancreatitis, who presented hemorrhage due to rupture of the splenic artery during a necrosectomy procedure and was successfully treated with selective embolization.

Keywords : Pancreatitis; hemorrhage; embolization.
