Abstract | Full Text

Retroperitoneal hemorrhage due to iatrogenic rupture of the iliac artery is a life-threatening complication associated with endovascular intervention. We present a case of iatrogenic iliac rupture after insertion of a sheath into a severely tortuous iliac artery during coil embolization of a cerebral aneurysm. Bleeding was controlled by resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta followed by placement of a balloon-expandable stent graft into the iliac artery. This resulted in complete repair of the ruptured iliac artery. The patient recovered without any neurological complications.
