Posttraumatic pseudoaneurysms of the lateral plantar artery are rare. We report the case of a 31-year-old woman with a painful pseudoaneurysm of the lateral plantar artery resulting from a deep plantar cut injury. The pseudoaneurysm was successfully treated by performing a transarterial “frontdoor-backdoor” coil embolization technique, which is a minimally invasive alternative to conventional ligature of the artery.
