Development of femoral artery pseudoaneurysm represents a continuing problem after percutaneous peripheral interventional procedures as well as coronary angioplasty. We report a case of symptomatic, expanding femoral artery pseudoaneurysm in a 60-year-old man who underwent percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and stenting for acute myocardial infarction. A self-expanding Wallgraft Endoprosthesis (Boston Scientific, USA) was delivered under fluoroscopic guidance via contralateral percutaneous femoral approach to the site, resulting in immediate complete exclusion of the pseudoaneurysms. Follow-up color duplex scanning confirmed false aneurysm exclusion 1 year postprocedure. Endovascular treatment of iatrogenic pseudoaneurysm appears to be an attractive alternative to surgical repair in critically ill patients, with a high degree of technical success, low morbidity and short hospital stay.
