The first, a 62-year-old man, presented with acute ischemia and a large hematoma in the axilla and chest wall. The second, a 63-year-old man, had a pseudoaneurysm and palpable peripheral pulses. Both underwent urgent computed tomography,(More)

We describe the endovascular management of a ruptured profunda femoris artery (PFA) pseudoaneurysm resulting from multiple buckshot pellet injuries. A 71-year-old man was referred with the diagnosis of ruptured pseudoaneurysm of the PFA. He had previously been in good health but, 6 months prior to the referral, had been accidentally shot while boar hunting.(More)
