Pseudoaneurysms of the subclavian artery are rarities. Due to their close relationship to the brachial plexus in the shoulder girdle, delayed lesions of the brachial plexus are possible. We report a case of a subclavian pseudoaneurysm following fracture of the clavicle, and the endovascular treatment using a balloon-expandable stent-graft.
