Aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms of visceral arteries are relatively rare clinical entities and their pathogenesis has not yet been fully understood. Aneurysmal rupture appears to be a complication leading to life-threatening internal haemorrhage and is a cause of high mortality. However, advances in endovascular surgery techniques have extended the capabilities of treating aneurysms, allowing microemboli to be delivered even to the hard-to-reach portions of the vascular bed with complicated anatomy. Presented in the article is a clinical case report regarding embolization of a false aneurysm of the inferior gastrointestinal artery, separated by a microcoil, and demonstrating possibilities of endovascular superselective embolization of the target vessel.

KEY WORDS: inferior gastrointestinal artery, aneurysm, embolization.
