Pseudoaneurysm is a relatively common complication of arterial injury. Arterial pseudoaneurysms have many different etiologies, including trauma, iatrogenic injury, vascular repair, infection, and vasculitides. In this case report, we present a pseudoaneurysm created by a fracture of superficial femoral artery (SFA) stent secondary to a mechanical fall. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a symptomatic pseudoaneurysm caused by a SFA stent fracture. The large, unruptured pseudoaneurysm in this case was successfully treated with a covered stent and pseudoaneurysm exclusion.
