The natural history of traumatic visceral venous pseudoaneurysm (VVP) is largely unknown, and hence, there is a lack of consensus for their management. This review aims to determine the management and outcomes of these injuries. A review of the reported cases over the last 25 years was performed. Only 32 cases were found, 24 abdominal, and 8 thoracic. Traumatic abdominal VVPs were largely managed nonoperatively, while majority of traumatic thoracic VVPs underwent intervention. Hemodynamic instability was the most common cause for intervention. No uniformity was noted for follow-up imaging of these injuries.
