Aortic pseudoaneurysm is a rare disease of the aorta and generally occurs because of previous surgical procedure (1). It does not include all layers of the artery. Clinical presentation can vary from asymptomatic to catastrophic outcomes (2). Although surgical management is the commonly accepted treatment, it can be related with high morbidity and mortality (3); therefore, endovascular strategies, such as thrombin injection, coiling, endovascular stenting, and Amplatzer occluder devices, are emerging as alternative treatment modalities which have fewer complication rates (4). We herein present a case of aortic pseudoaneurysm, due to a previous surgery, that was successfully treated using a transcatheter Amplatzer duct occluder device.
