Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm involving the hepatic arterial system is a recognized complication of biliary surgery. The standard nonsurgical treatment is coil embolization. We present a case of a patient who underwent coil embolization of a pseudoaneurysm and subsequently presented with ascending cholangitis due to migration of coils into the common bile duct.
