Visceral artery aneurysms is a rare but important condition associated with significant mortality when rupture occurs. Technological advance has increased the role endovascular therapy plays in their management, particularly in patients whom surgery is considered to pose significant risk. Maintenance of end organ perfusion is vital when selecting the optimal endovascular treatment to exclude the aneurysm. This review will discuss the precautions required in different vascular territory outlining the endovascular treatments available. The evidence supporting the endovascular treatments and associated risks will also be discussed.
