Abstract Endourological methods are attractive procedures for the treatment of ureterointestinal stenosis. However, serious complications may occur. This article reports the case of an endovascular repair of a nearly fatal ruptured common iliac artery pseudoaneurysm after endoureterotomy. A 62-year-old man submitted to bilateral ureteroileostomy developed left ureteroileal anastomosis stricture. Endourological treatment with the Acucise® cutting balloon was performed and 4 days after the procedure the patient presented with massive bleeding through the ileal stoma and hypovolemic shock. Arteriography identified the source of bleeding as a pseudoaneurysm of the left common iliac artery. Repair with an endovascular graft stopped the bleeding immediately. Endovascular treatment of vascular injury after endoureterotomy should be considered.
