Haemosuccus pancreaticus is a rare cause of gastrointestinal haemorrhage. It is commonly due to a pseudoaneurysm in a setting of chronic pancreatitis. Treatment of aneurysms has traditionally been surgery; however, recently percutaneous radiological intervention has achieved good results with minimum morbidity and mortality. Transcatheter embolization of aneurysms is an effective treatment option. However, not all aneurysms are accessible through this route. We describe a technique of direct puncture embolization of a pseudoaneurysm causing haemosuccus pancreaticus.
