Abstract

Visceral artery pseudoaneurysm is a rare and potentially life-threatening vascular entity with a high mortality rate, conventionally managed with digital subtraction angiography with coil embolization or surgery. However, in cases where angiographic coil embolization is not possible due to technical reasons, computerized tomography (CT)/ultrasonography-guided thrombin injection remains a viable option as described in the literature. In this case series, we intend to highlight the role of endoscopic ultrasound-guided thrombin injection in the management of abdominal visceral artery pseudoaneurysm, which is either inaccessible by endovascular route or have high surgical risk of complication.
