Catheter-based endovascular techniques for vascular trauma management are being increasingly reported. Covered stents may be inserted and deployed through a remote site of percutaneous access under local anesthesia and are ideal for treating arterial ruptures and pseudoaneurysms and to seal off arteriovenous communications. Advantages of endovascular stent-graft repair of peripheral traumatic arterial injuries include less blood loss and tissue damage, reduced operative time and morbidity, shortened hospital stay and recovery periods, and reduced healthcare costs. The present report provides an overview of the role of balloon-expandable and self-expandable covered stents in the minimally invasive treatment of various types of traumatic arterial injuries.
