Arthroscopic meniscectomy of the knee is generally a safe and effective procedure with a low rate of vascular complications. The authors encountered a case of a pseudoaneurysm of the lateral inferior genicular artery after arthroscopic partial meniscectomy of lateral meniscus. The pseudoaneurysm was treated successfully using transcatheter embolization. No recurrence of the hemarthrosis was observed in the patient after a follow-up of 2 years.
