Abstract

Major vessel (aorta or iliac vessels) injury is a rare yet catastrophic complication of spinal surgery. Prompt diagnosis is vital for effectively treating these injuries. A 56-year-old female with iliac artery iatrogenic injury during lumbar discectomy was successfully treated by percutaneous placement of a self-expanding stent graft in an emergent setting in an angiography suite. Postprocedural angiogram demonstrated complete exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm without contrast agent leakage. Endovascular treatment is suggested as an excellent alternative to open surgery for iatrogenic great vessel injuries, particularly in critical conditions.
