PMID:  7723109     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Hepatic abscess is a known complication following packing for massive liver injury. Posttraumatic hepatic arterial pseudoaneurysms are rare. The trend in management in each individual complication has been toward minimally invasive techniques. We present a case wherein the two processes occurred together and were managed safely with a transcatheter approach.
