Pseudoaneurysms of the internal mammary artery (IMA) following median sternotomy are very uncommon and were first reported in 1973. Presentation and treatment of such a complication has been variable. We are presenting a case of a patient with pseudoaneurysm of IMA after mitral valve replacement. Selective embolization of the branches of right IMA was performed. Hematoma was evacuated after a week without any complication. Patient was reviewed in the clinic after 6 weeks and she was doing very well.
