Fig. 2. A 23-year-old male with Crohn’s disease (CD) presented with hematochezia. The first angiography performed the day after the initial presentation showed no evidence of bleeding but the patient reported recurrent symptoms of hematochezia. The second angiography was performed 11 days after the initial angiography. (A) Superiror mesenteric angiogram showed a pseudonaeurysm in the proximal jejunal artery. (B) Superselection with microcatheter enabled access to the level of vasa recta and embolization was performed using microcoils. (C) Postembolization angiography confirmed no residual bleeding or pseudoanuerysm. The patient underwent a surgical resection due to another episode of CD-related gastrointestinal bleeding 20 months after the successful transcatheter arterial embolization.
