Herein, we present the case of a 22-year-old man who sustained a gunshot wound to a persistent sciatic artery. Endovascular stent management of the arterial injury obviated the need for surgical repair and revascularization in the presence of acute trauma. We believe this to be the 1st report of a completely endovascular repair of a penetrating traumatic injury to a persistent sciatic artery.In addition, we review the origin and significance of persistent sciatic artery, and we discuss the treatment of sequelae that are associated with this vascular anomaly.
