Non-giant cell arteritis disease of the superficial temporal artery (STA) is rare, appearing only as case reports in the literature. There were nine patients with STA pathology. STA aneurysm (n = 1), pseudoaneurysm (n = 4), thrombosis (n = 1), and arteriovenous malformation (n = 3). Four patients had ligation and excision, three had percutaneous interventions and one had a combination of both. All patients had immediate technical success and eight of the nine total patients had follow-up. We present a variety of ways to approach these unusual pathologies with percutaneous and open techniques demonstrating very good early outcome.
