We report a case of a pseudoaneurysm of the medial circumflex femoral artery that presented 4 months following cementless left total hip arthroplasty (THA). A successful embolization was achieved using super-selective catheterization and coil embolization. Arterial complications associated with THA are remarkably rare. Endovascular techniques have been shown to be effective and are considered a valid alternative to conventional surgery.
