We report a pseudoaneurysm of the medial plantar artery that developed after percutaneous pinning for a Lisfranc fracture-dislocation in a 68-year-old male. Postembolization ultrasound and arteriography demonstrated successful ablation of the pseudoaneurysm following intra-arterial thrombin injection. Postoperative pulse volume recording and photoplethysmograph of the digits revealed excellent perfusion following ablation. (J Am Podiatr Med Assoc 99(1): 58–60, 2009)
