The ­authors dis­cuss a ­case of per­cut­ane­ous trans­cath­et­er embol­isa­tion and fol­low-up of a hepat­ic ­artery pseu­do­aneu­rysm in a 63-­year-old man fol­low­ing sur­gi­cal treat­ment of pep­tic ­ulcer dis­ease. The ­lesion was diag­nosed ­with CT, ­colour Doppler US and angio­gra­phy and was treat­ed ­with per­cut­ane­ous trans­cath­et­er embol­isa­tion ­using tung­sten ­coils: clin­i­cal con­di­tions ­improved and the ­size of the aneu­rys­mat­ic sac ­reduced. Embolisation treat­ment ­with tung­sten ­coils ­arrests bleed­ing and ­relieves symp­toms. Tungsten ­coils are eas­i­ly ­placed in posi­tion. Transcatheter embol­isa­tion of hepat­ic ­artery aneu­rysms ­using tung­sten ­coils may be regard­ed as the meth­od of ­choice ­owing to the ­high ­rate of suc­cess and low inci­dence of com­pli­ca­tions.
