Pseudoaneurysms of the hepatic artery or its branches are rare complications with several potential causes. Herein, the authors report two cases of pseudoaneurysms of hepatic artery branches, one secondary to laparoscopic surgery and the other probably due to malignancy. The pseudoaneurysms were treated with the placement of self-expanding stent-grafts. Complete ...

Pseudoaneurysms and arteriovenous fistulas of renal arteries are rare clinical lesions. Invasive renal procedures may lead to pseudoaneurysm or arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs). We report two pseudoaneurysms and arteriovenous fistula cases that were treated by transcatheter embolization with metallic coils. The first case is left main renal artery pseudoaneurysm after nephrectomy ...

Summary: Formation of an iatrogenic subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm while attempting central venous access through the internal jugular vein is relatively uncommon. However, management of a subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm remains a challenge because of its growing tendency and its relation to the origin of the vertebral artery (VA). We report a ...

Pseudoaneurysms develop at the site of arterial access when there is failure to establish adequate hemostasis. The number of percutaneous diagnostic and therapeutic coronary and peripheral vascular interventions has increased and with it a commensurate rise in the incidence of pseudoaneurysms is observed. Clinical examination and color-flow duplex ultrasound identify ...

Sonographically guided percutaneous thrombin injection is a minimally invasive and highly successful treatment of arterial pseudoaneurysms. Despite a very low complication rate, several severe arterial thrombotic events have been reported following thrombin injection of pseudoaneurysms. Native arterial thrombosis, though recognized as a severe complication of thrombin injection, has not been ...

Pseudoaneurysms can arise due to localized arterial wall disruption, owing to various factors such as inflammation, trauma, neoplasm, or surgical procedures. Once ruptured, bleeding can be life-threatening. Thus, a treatment for pseudoaneurysm is necessary. We describe a case of post-surgical ruptured pseudoaneurysm of the lingual artery that was successfully treated ...

A 69-year-old man with a history of acute pancreatitis developed a huge pseudoaneurysm of the gastroduodenal artery (PAGD), as diagnosed by CT scan. The PAGD was treated by percutaneous thrombin injection (2,000 IU) under ultrasound guidance and selective embolization of gastroduodenal artery with microcoils with its complete exclusion. The 6-month ...

Iatrogenic causes constitute increasingly frequent sources of pseudoaneurysms due to endovascular interventions. However, till now, all analyses focused on evaluating different risk factors contributing to the development of pseudoaneurysm, overlooking the issue of localization of femoral puncture. The aim of this study was to assess the influence of position of ...
