Vascular complications following laparoscopic cholecystectomy are less frequent but carry higher morbidity than bile ducts lesions. We report on a 19-year-old patient, who presented a ruptured pseudoaneurysm of the hepatic artery 2 months after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. This case illustrates the alternative of direct transhepatic puncture with exclusive glue embolization in case of endovascular access failure.
