Abstract

We present a case of arteriovenous graft pseudoaneurysms treated endovascularly with stent grafts and make suggestions regarding the technique of evaluating the pseudoaneurysms and choosing the proper location to deploy the stent grafts to maximize the outcomes and minimize the length of the graft covered by the stent. We also comment on the selection of lesions that are suitable to be treated with this technique.
