The authors describe a patient with a posttraumatic intrahepatic false aneurysm. In this case, transcatheter embolization was not possible because of previous right hepatic artery embolization. To avoid the morbidity associated with surgery, direct percutaneous puncture of the pseudoaneurysm was performed under fluoroscopic guidance to permit embolization with Gianturco coils. Direct percutaneous embolization of intrahepatic aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms can be a safe and effective alternative… CONTINUE READING
