DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2015-47363 Major vessel injury during spinal surgery is a rare, but one of the most distressing complications, and it may be fatal. Prompt diagnosis and management are crucial in order to prevent poor outcomes. Here, we report two cases of arterial injury during lumbar disc surgery with different presentations. One patient"s injury was realized during operation whereas the other patient"s condition was diagnosed six hours after surgery, with a pseudonaneurysm formation. Both patients were treated with endovascular methods. Endovascular stent grafting offers an effective method for treatment of aortic and iliac artery injuries.
