Treatment of patients with spleen injuries has changed in the last few decades, especially in favor of non-operative management (NOM), that ranges from observation and monitoring to angiography/angioembolization in patients hemodynamically stable. Various strategy of embolizations exists and different curative approach can be adopted. In this paper we review the selection criteria for splenic artery embolization and the different strategies of treatment.
