We ­describe a ­case of an iso­lated aneu­rysm of the ­left hypo­gas­tric ­artery ­which ­came ­under our obser­va­tion ­because of a syn­drome of com­pres­sion on the homo­lat­eral ­iliac ­vein. ­Having ­excluded the pres­ence of aneu­rysms in ­other ­sites, it was ­decided to per­form a per­cut­aneous embol­iza­tion of the hypo­gas­tric aneu­rysm. The ­follow-up ­revealed the dis­ap­pear­ance of the com­pres­sion on the ipsi­lat­eral ­iliac ­vein and a 30% reduc­tion in the diam­eter of the throm­bosed aneu­rysm. The ­method lim­ited inva­sive­ness, the reduc­tion in ­volume of the aneu­rysmal ­mass, the dis­ap­pear­ance of com­pres­sion prob­lems, and the short­ened hos­pi­tal­iza­tion ­time sup­port the ­choice of embol­iza­tion treat­ment.
