OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this review is to describe adrenal arterial anatomy and to discuss the indications, outcomes, and technical considerations of adrenal artery embolization. CONCLUSION. Adrenal artery embolization can be used for management of adrenal tumors (palliative for pain relief, debulking, or hormone suppression) and treatment of acute bleeding from ruptured adrenal tumors, traumatic adrenal injury, and aneurysms. Variant arterial supplies, options for embolic agents, and potential complications are important considerations.
