PMID:  19741378     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Reports of inferior vena cava (IVC) pseudoaneurysms are always associated with arteriovenous fistulae and arterial injuries. This seems to be the first case report of an isolated IVC pseudoaneurysm in a 40-year-old man who suffered a penetrating abdominal injury 4 weeks before being referred to our hospital. Jaundice was the finding that leads to the identification of this aneurysm and its later successful surgical treatment. This is a nonreported lesion in the published literature about IVC injuries, in which the endovascular therapy is recently included.
