abstract

  • We wish to highlight arterial dissection as an unusual complication during endovascular coiling of a pancreatic pseudoaneurysm. Immediate recognition and prompt corrective measures prevented progression of this serious condition. In our patient, angioplasty prevented further propagation of the dissection and preserved coeliac artery patency.
