Iatrogenic lumbar artery pseudoaneurysm is a very rare complication of spinal surgery. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of a lumbar artery pseudoaneurysm after extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF). The lesion was diagnosed by catheter spinal angiography and was effectively treated with embolization.
