|Abstract: ||True aneurysm of the splenic artery is rare. Two cases of ruptured true
aneurysm are presented. The first patient was a 62-year-old female who
presented within 6 hours of the onset of symptoms. The other was a
27-year-old nonalcoholic male patient who was admitted in a state of
shock after 2 days of observation in a peripheral hospital. Both
patients had haemoperitoneum and were subjected to exploratory
laparotomy. Anuerysmectomy was performed in both the patients in
addition to left splenopancreatectomy in the first case and splenectomy
in the second. However, due to the prolonged preoperative shock, the
second patient succumbed on the third postoperative day.|
