Sažetak
Posttraumatic hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare, but life threatening condition which should be considered in patients with a history of blunt abdominal trauma who present with abdominal pain or gastrointestinal bleeding. We report a case of a patient with such a pseudoaneurysm discovered five months after a bicycle accident resulting in hepatic rupture that was treated conservatively. The patient presented with fatigue, dizziness, inability to tolerate major exertion and gastrointestinal bleeding. After extensive diagnostic procedures, a right hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm was found. The condition was treated successfully with transcatheter coil embolization.
