Traumatic Inferior Gluteal Artery Aneurysm Managed with Emergency Transcatheter Thrombin Injection
Pseudoaneurysms of the inferior gluteal artery (IGA) are rare and are often caused by trauma. Treatment options vary and include
surgery, ultrasound-guided percutaneous thrombin injection, and endovascular procedures such as stent-graft placement, coil
embolization, and glue injection. We report a 70-year-old male who presented to the hospital after a road accident with a
posttraumatic pseudoaneurysm that was treated by endovascular thrombin embolization. To the best of our knowledge, this is
the first reported case of inferior gluteal artery false aneurysm treated by this method.
