Treatment of abdominal aortic anastomotic pseudoaneurysm with percutaneous coil embolization JOURNAL OF VASCULAR SURGERY Fann, J. I., Samuels, S., Slonim, S., Burdon, T. A., Dalman, R. L. 2002; 35 (4): 811-814


Intraabdominal anastomotic pseudoaneurysms continue to be a late complication of aortic reconstructive procedures. Early surgical repair is critical but is associated with high operative mortality rates. We present a patient who was diagnosed with a distal anastomotic pseudoaneurysm 13 months after transabdominal repair of a symptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysm. Because of the poor operative risk, the patient was considered for a less invasive approach and underwent coil embolization of the abdominal aortic anastomotic pseudoaneurysm. The patient remains without recurrence of pseudoaneurysm 3.5 years later.
