Endovascular treatment of a post-traumatic tibial pseudoaneurysm and arteriovenous fistula: Case report and review of the literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Here we report a rare case of a 74-year-old man with a pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery and a concomitant arteriovenous fistula (AVF). The patient was admitted because of increasing pain following the formation of a large mass located in the anterior mid-portion of the calf after a moderate non-penetrating blunt trauma. A polytetrafluoroethylene-covered stent was placed over the origin of the pseudoaneurysm, with complete exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm and disappearance of the AVF. One year after the procedure the mass had completely disappeared and the vascular anatomy of the calf is well preserved.
