Abstract

The authors present a review of literature concerning symptoms, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of subclavian artery aneurysms, which constitute 0.13–0.5% of all peripheral arterial aneurysms. Usually, they are asymptomatic and remain undiagnosed for a long time or may cause troublesome symptoms, diagnostic errors and serious threats. A large part of even asymptomatic subclavian artery aneurysms require surgical treatment. Once detected, the presence of subclavian artery aneurysm should incline to look for aneurysms in other locations, as they coexist in 33–47%. Based on our observations, we have presented the possibilities of an effective and safe therapeutic approach, including endovascular methods, particularly in patients with significant burdens.
