Although splenic artery aneurysms (SAAs) are relatively uncommon, they are clinically relevant because of the risk of rupture. Optimal management is a matter of debate and involves the use of percutaneous endovascular stenting, which has limitations, versus the open surgical approach which can lead to significant morbidity. The present study reports the outcomes of robot-assisted surgery for SAA and its role in overcoming many of the limitations of laparoscopy.
