Abstract

A pseudoaneurysm, also termed a false aneurysm, is a leakage of blood from an artery into the surrounding tissue with persistent communication between the originating artery and the terminating blood-filled cavity. Pseudoaneurysms involving the uterine arteries are rare and can be a complication of pregnancy, pelvic surgery, or pelvic trauma. Presenting symptoms include persistent vaginal bleeding and pelvic pain. The detection and diagnosis of a uterine artery pseudoaneurysm is important because of the potential for rupture and hemorrhage, which could be lethal. A variety of treatment options are available, with embolization being the most common.
