Isolated spontaneous celiac artery dissection in a 47-year-old man with von Willebrand disease



Isolated spontaneous celiac artery dissection in a 47-year-old man with von Willebrand disease



Texas Heart Institute Journal 41(3): 344-345



Isolated spontaneous dissection of the celiac artery is rare, and its occurrence without aortic dissection is even rarer. The typical symptom of this dissection is acute-onset abdominal pain. Complications of the condition include aneurysm formation, rupture, and abdominal-organ ischemia or infarction, especially in the liver or spleen. We report the case of a 47-year-old man with von Willebrand disease who had an isolated spontaneous dissection of the celiac artery. We used computed tomography and computed tomographic angiography in the diagnosis and characterization of the dissection. To our knowledge, this is the first report of celiac artery dissection in a patient with von Willebrand disease.
