PURPOSE: To describe the successful endovascular treatment of an iatrogenic anterior tibial artery pseudoaneurysm with a polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent-graft. CASE REPORT: A 58-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with pseudoarthrosis and malunion of the right distal tibia. Fibulotomy and intramedullary fixation were performed, which was complicated by a pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery. Under local anesthesia, a 4x31-mm Symbiot covered stent was successfully placed over the origin of the pseudoaneurysm. At 12 months, the pseudoaneurysm remained excluded, and the anterior tibial artery was patent. CONCLUSIONS: Endovascular treatment of a crural artery pseudoaneurysm seems to be a feasible treatment option. Further experience with this technique is needed to validate its safety and long-term patency.
