Rupture of Hypogastric Artery Aneurysm Following Failed Endovascular Repair: A Case Report

Marika Gassner*,Sachinder S. Hans

Hypogastric artery aneurysms are usually associated with aortic and common iliac aneurysm and rarely occur in isolation1-6. The majority of hypogastric artery aneurysms are incidentally detected on imaging of the abdomen or pelvis for unrelated complaints. Those that present in extremis are associated with acute rupture and carry a high mortality rate.1,2 Herein we present a case of an incidentally found isolated right hypogastric artery aneurysm treated initially with endovascular repair. The aneurysm subsequently ruptured and was treated successfully with open repair.
