Iatrogenic injuries of the intrarenal arterial system include pseudoaneurysms and fistulas. They can cause hematuria and life-threatening hemodynamic instability, and therefore should be treated promptly. Endovascular treatment is recommended for these cases due to its effectiveness. Among the different agents used for embolization, n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (glue) has rarely been used. We ...

Pseudoaneurysm is a pulsating hematoma that occurs after an injury to all layers of the arterial wall. Traumas due to gunshot injuries may sometimes damage the arteries indirectly with the thermal energy causing deterioration in the arterial wall and rarely induce pseudoaneurysm formation. Pseudoaneurysm caused by the chest traumas in ...
