Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ileocolic pseudoaneurysmal disease is a rare splanchnic aneurysm that affects 3 out of 100 000 patients, and only 7 cases have been described in the past 40 years in patients without preexisting connective tissue disorders. Abdominal pain is the most common presenting symptom and nearly 30% of patients present with hemorrhage. Ileocolic pseudoaneurysms are diagnosed by contrasted computed tomography scans and verified by arteriography. We present a case report and review of the literature in which a patient was initially managed by coil embolization, followed by laparotomy and suture ligation due to pseudoaneurysm rupture.
