Abdominal aortic pseudoaneurysm is an uncommon, but challenging condition. The most common etiologies are either trauma or iatrogenic repair via open surgery, endovascular aortic cuff, and exclusion via placement of coils has been described. We describe a case of a juxta-renal aortic pseudoaneurysm following aorto-bi-iliac bypass grafting that was successfully excluded by endovascular placement of a percutaneous septal occlusion device.
