Pseudoaneurysm is a recognized vascular complication of osteochondromas. The diagnosis is confirmed by various imaging techniques including ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, and conventional angiography. Surgical repair and excision of the adjacent osteochondroma is considered the treatment of choice. The authors report a case of successful transarterial embolization using helical microcoils in the treatment of osteochondroma-related pseudoaneurysm of the superficial femoral artery. It resulted in complete obliteration of blood flow to the pseudoaneurysm and good symptomatic relief before subsequent semielective surgery. No complication was encountered during the procedure. Transarterial embolization is a safe mode of treatment in experienced hands. In patients with contraindications to surgery, embolization may be considered a definitive treatment.
