Traumatic pseudoaneuryms of the supraescapular artery have been rarely reported. Management modalities poorly defined. Treatment options include simple observation, surgical intervention, and endovascular embolization alone or followed by surgery. We present a case of a traumatic pseudoaneurysm in the supraescapular artery in a 80-year-old woman which was succesfully treated with endovascular embolization.
