This report describes the use of transluminal coil embolization to treat pseudoaneurysm of deep femoral artery branch in two patients. The pseudoaneurysms had developed after coronary angiographv in one patient and after hip replacement in the other. Immediate control angiography after embolization procedures demonstrated complete closure of the pseudoaneurysms. During follow-up of 19 and 3 months, respectively, there was no recurrent bleeding. The aim of this case report is to show the advances in endovascular microcatheter technology, and embolic materials, that made percutaneous transluminal embolization of arterial pseudoaneurysms safe and efficient. In addition, it keeps the medical personnel aware of vascular injuries at the access site related to endovascular procedures as well as vascular complications of total hip arthroplasty. It calls their attention to the possibility of endovascular treatment as an alternative to surgery.
