We report on a case of an asymptomatic splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) with a large neck in a 53-year-old female with an extreme vessel tortuosity which was treated with a Double Microcatheter Technique. This endovascular procedure consists of embolization of the aneurysm using detachable coils with no application of any glue, stent or balloon. At the end of procedure, no complications occurred. At the three-month follow-up an MRI showed the aneurysm’s complete exclusion and patency of the splenic artery.
