A 78-year-old man was seen with an expanding 5 cm false aneurysm of the right subclavian artery. This was treated by an intraluminal graft-stent device introduced through the brachial artery via a 16 F sheath. The graft was constructed from two polytetrafluoroethylene patches of 0.4 mm thickness and anchored in the subclavian artery by an 8 mm stainless steel stent. The procedure was monitored by an image intensifier. Completion arteriography and postoperative duplex scanning confirmed normal flow through the subclavian artery with no communication between the lumen and the aneurysmal sac. The patient recovered without complication.
