38-year old, drunken man had fell from the window and was admited to the hospital with multiple limb fractures and
suspicion of traumatic liver injury. Post-contrast CT examination proved the pseudoaneurysm arising caudally from the
proper hepatic artery. The indicated angiography should specify location and character of the pseudoaneurysm and
allow its subsequent embolization. After placing the catheter tip into its neck the pseudoaneurysm was successfully
closed by metal coils and mixture of tissue glue (Histoacryl) and contrast medium (Lipiodol Ultrafluid).
