Abstract
Surgical management of hypogastric artery aneurysm is associated with high morbidity due to hemorrhage and ischemia. Occlusion by embolization is an attractive alternative treatment. Between 1991 and 1995, we used Gianturco coils to embolize 17 hypogastric aneurysms in 14 patients. All patients were men with a mean age of 77 years. Ten patients had previously undergone aortic repair. Complete occlusion of the aneurysm was achieved in 16 cases but placement of an iliac stent was required in 1 case. Embolization failed in one case involving rupture of a large aneurysm. No complications were observed. Moderate buttock claudication was noted after bilateral embolization in three cases. Embolization of hypogastric artery aneurysm using coils resolves the long-term problems associated with surgical ligation. Extensive aneurysm of the origin to the bifurcation is the main indication for nonresective treatment but embolization can also be a useful alternative to open surgery for high-risk patients. Availability of stent grafts may extend the indication for endovascular treatment.

Explanation:
I agree with the other answer.
There are terms for the anatomical "Aussackung" in English, like "sac, sacculation, bursa", but what you are looking for is a life-threatening condition and the definition of the German "Aneurysma" fits perfectly too:
DEF: umschriebene, meist assymmetrische, dauerhafte krankhafte Wandausbuchtung eines vorgeschädigten arteriellen Blutgefäßes oder der Herzwand; -> Aneurysma verum: A. durch örtliche Aufdehnung aller Wandschichten des Gefäßes...; bei Einriß Gefahr einer rasant verlaufenden und lebensbedrohlichen Blutung
