The Profunda Femoris is a common site for arterial pseudo-aneurysms and these have been described in literature following fractures as well as orthopaedic procedures of the femur and hip region. These are an uncommon complication and a high index of suspicion is required for correct diagnosis and prompt management. We present a case of pseudo-aneurysm of the Profunda Femoris in an operated case of Intertrochanteric femur fracture with acute presentation. The case was managed successfully by angiographic coil embolization.
