Acute Manifestation of Pseudoaneurysm in Post-Operative Period
Pseudoaneurysms are the result of damage to the vascular wall due to factors such as trauma, tumor, infection, vasculitis, atherosclerosis or iatrogenic injury. The iliac artery is a rare site accounting for 3 to 18% of all cases. (1) Most cases present with a pulsatile mass, compressive symptoms, secondary hemorrhage and neurologic deficit. (2) We describe an atypical presentation of a pseudo aneurysm in left common iliac artery which could have proved fatal in post-operative care.
