Extrahepatic portal vein aneurysm.

Abstract : Portal vein aneurysms (PVAs) are usually incidental on imaging and asymptomatic. If it is symptomatic or associated with a pathologic finding, a treatment is recommended. We report a case of a 75-year-old Caucasian man presenting with symptomatic and size-increasing portosplenomesenteric aneurysms. Interventional radiology was not indicated because of the large size. A surgical approach was chosen for the patient. Surgical technique consists of an aneurysmorrhaphy in the first time and in the second time, a Goretex prosthesis placement involving the vein. Early complication was treated with a radiologic approach. Six months after surgery, patient had no more symptoms. PVA management remains a surgical challenge for surgeon, for timing and type of treatment.
