PURPOSE: To report endovascular repair of injuries to the external iliac artery during hip surgery. CASE REPORTS: Two elderly women with histories of chronically infected hip prostheses were found to have iatrogenic leaking pseudoaneurysms of the external iliac artery due to hip surgery trauma in the past. Both were treated successfully with a Jostent Peripheral Stent-Graft. The first patient died 17 months after treatment, and the second was well, with an excluded false aneurysm, at the 6-month follow-up. CONCLUSIONS: Stent-graft repair may be an appropriate and effective treatment for some traumatic arterial lesions.
