Endovascular treatment of a post-traumatic posterior tibial artery pseudoaneurysm: A case report

Mohamed Osman, Sakr Abd-Elaty, Zamzm Lotfy, Mostafa Mohamed, El-areef Emad.


Post-traumatic pseudoaneurysms of the posterior tibial artery are uncommon and are very rarely seen due to firearm injuries. These
pseudoaneurysms are seldomly located in the middle one-third of the posterior tibial artery. In recent years, in the management strategy
of post-traumatic pseudoaneurysms, endovascular repair, as being an anatomical and less invasive modality, has increasingly gained more
attention, compared to open repair. Herein, we present a 22-year-old male case of a delayed symptomatic post-firearm injury pseudoaneurysm
of the posterior tibial artery treated with an endovascular stent graft in the light of literature data.

Key words: Firearm injury; posterior tibial artery; pseudoaneurysm; stent graft.
