Abstract


Pseudoaneurysm (PA) of posterior tibial artery (PTA) is not very common and that of middle one-third of PTA is rare. Endovascular treatment of symptomatic PAs has become a viable less invasive option compared to open repair. In this case report, a 64-year-old gentleman came with acute thrombosis of superficial femoral artery which was treated successfully by embolectomy. He later presented to us with increasing pain over the calf region which on duplex scan revealed us a PA of middle one-third of PTA. It was successfully managed by endovascular stenting without compromising the distal blood flow. An extensive review of the literature has also been performed.
