False aneurysm of the gluteal artery is uncommon and may develop secondary to penetrating gluteal injury or pelvic trauma. The use of color Doppler sonography may allow the initial diagnosis of gluteal pseudoaneurysms and provide information about the success of the interventional radiological procedures. In this study, color Doppler sonographic examination demonstrated the failure of the endovascular treatment of a giant superior gluteal artery pseudoaneurysm. The second intervention of super-selective coil embolization provided optimal thrombosis and eliminated the need for open surgery. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
