Guglielmi detachable coil erosion into the common bile duct after embolization of iatrogenic hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm

Intermittent hemobilia with a hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm can be seen after open or laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Transcatheter treatment of this complication is widely accepted. Although some authors suggest packing the pseudoaneurysm with coils as the treatment of choice, occluding the parent artery is the standard treatment. The authors present an unusual complication of Guglielmi detachable coil erosion into the common bile duct in a patient who presented with pancreatitis 2 years after undergoing packing of the hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm with coils. The probable causes of this rare outcome and alternative treatment options are discussed.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.

Cajal Bodies & Gems

Cajal bodies or coiled bodies are dense foci of coilin protein. Gemini of Cajal bodies, or gems, are microscopically similar to Cajal bodies. It is believed that Cajal bodies play important roles in RNA processing while gems assist the Cajal bodies. Find the latest research on Cajal bodies and gems here.


Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.
