Rare cases of pseudoaneurysm


Nishath Fathima

Pseudoaneurysms (PSA) are permanent dilatation of arterial wall with 50% increase in the diameter when compared to normal arterial diameter. They are false aneurysms that occur at the site of arterial injury. They are different from true aneurysms which contains full thickness of arterial wall layers. It requires prompt recognition and immediate treatment as it can lead to life threatening complications like rupture, torrential bleeding or cause for sudden death. Causes for pseudoaneurysm are following an endovascular procedure, post traumatic, from the anastomotic failure following a bypass procedure, pancreatitis with pseudocyst/pancreatic fistula, infection. In this case series we present three patients who developed pseudoaneurysm following an endovascular procedure in a patient with Takayasu arteritis, post traumatic pseudoaneurysm in paediatric age group, pseudoaneurysm following arthroscopic procedure for PCL repair.
