Post traumatic hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm


Hepatic artery aneurysms are rare. Rarer are those associated with a venous or biliary fistula. They tend to be saccular and multiple. Causes include infection, arteriosclerosis, trauma and vasculitis. Untreated aneurysms can lead to rupture into the common bile duct, peritoneum, or nearby hollow viscera.
