Surgical interventions

Surgical ligation: as per SVS 2020 guidelines, consider performing ligation if sufficient collateral circulation to the liver can be documented in patients with Ruptured celiac artery aneurysm discovered at laparotomy.

Follow-up and surveillance

Surveillance imaging
As per SVS 2020 guidelines:
Consider obtaining annual surveillance with CTA to assess for growth in size in patients with celiac artery aneurysm being observed with a nonoperative or noninterventional approach.
Consider obtaining periodic surveillance with appropriate imaging studies to assess for the possibility of endoleak or aneurysm reperfusion that could lead to a continued risk of aneurysm growth or rupture after endovascular intervention.
