Abstract/OtherAbstract:
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.
