Abstract

A novel approach to embolization treatment with a cyanoacrylate solution for a bleeding pseudoaneurysm associated with pancreatitis is described in the setting of a critically ill patient. Computed tomography and a C-arm fluoroscopic unit were used to guide percutaneous placement of a needle and injection of the embolic material. This technique represents an alternative form of embolization when traditional angiographic techniques are not possible.
