40-year-old male presented with right upper quadrant stab wound.

Intervention used

Arterial access was gained via the right common femoral artery. A Simmons 1 catheter was used to select the celiac artery and angiography was performed. Through the 5 F catheter, a 2.8 F Progreat™ Microcatheter and Fathom™ Steerable Guidewire was advanced into the left hepatic artery and angiography was performed. The segment 4 hepatic artery was catheterized and arteriography demonstrated a blush protruding from off the branch. 0.2 cc of Obsidio Embolic (purple arrow) was injected via the segment 4 artery. Follow-up angiography demonstrated successful occlusion of the segment 4 artery and resolution of the blush.


Patient stabilized immediately following embolization. The patient was discharged after 5 days.
