What is splenic artery aneurysm?

Splenic artery aneurysm (SAA) is an abnormal balloon-like or sac-like dilation and weakening of the artery leading to the spleen. The spleen is responsible for filtering blood and removing the old red blood cells. SAAs more commonly occur in females especially during pregnancy.
