An angiographic appearance of "pseudo" intramural injection is commonly produced following intraluminal balloon dilatation resulting from the dehiscence of the atheromatous intima that is an unavoidable consequence, and not a complication of angioplasty. These angioplasty-induced changes differ from true intramural dissections in that they are confined to the dilatation site and do not extend beyond this area.
