This report describes two cases of pseudoaneurysms of the peroneal artery which were successfully treated by transluminal platinum coil embolization. A pseudoaneurysm developed following a penetrating wound of the calf, and another did following thromboembolectomy of the occluded femoropopliteal bypass with a Fogarty balloon catheter. The coils were guided and released into the proximal peroneal arteries via the placed catheters on the ipsilateral and contralateral femoral arteries, respectively. The pseudoaneurysms disappeared in both cases and the patients have been doing well until now.
