  • A 24-year-old man presented to us 10 days after suffering blunt trauma to the abdomen. He was diagnosed with pancreatic transection and underwent distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy. Two weeks after the operation, he developed intra-abdominal haemorrhage. Selective visceral angiogram revealed left gastric artery pseudoaneurysm, which had embolised. His recovery was uneventful. To our knowledge, ruptured left gastric artery pseudoaneurysm following pancreatic trauma, has not been reported before. In this article, we discuss some vascular complications of pancreatic trauma.
