PMID:  16933158     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a rare case of two communicating pseudoaneurysms of the common hepatic artery 1 month postoperatively following pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy due an abscess formation. We describe the superselective transcatheteral embolization technique with deployment of interlocking detachable coils and Histoacryl-Lipiodol in this case and discuss the recent literature. Despite the technical success by achieving hemodynamic stability with initial preservation of liver function, the patient died 23 days postembolization due to multiorgan failure.
