Endovascular repair of a nearly fatal iliac artery injury after endoureterotomy.

Endourological methods are attractive procedures for the treatment of ureterointestinal stenosis. However, serious complications may occur. This article reports the case of an endovascular repair of a nearly fatal ruptured common iliac artery pseudoaneurysm after endoureterotomy. A 62-year-old man submitted to bilateral ureteroileostomy developed left ureteroileal anastomosis stricture. Endourological treatment with the AcuciseĀ® cutting balloon was performed and 4 days after the procedure the patient presented with massive bleeding through the ileal stoma and hypovolemic shock. Arteriography identified the source of bleeding as a pseudoaneurysm of the left common iliac artery. Repair with an endovascular graft stopped the bleeding immediately. Endovascular treatment of vascular injury after endoureterotomy should be considered.
