Abstract

We present a new case of pseudoaneurysm of the abdominal wall, subsidiary to the inferior epigastric artery, associated with the use of discharge sutures. Pseudoaneurysms are a well-known complication of surgery, puncture, or trauma. Pseudoaneurysms of the inferior epigastric artery are very infrequent. We know of only two cases in the literature. In both cases, the pseudoaneurysm was associated with the use of discharge sutures. We discuss its pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment.
