Endovascular Treatment of Femoral Artery Pseudoaneurysm in a HIV Positive Patient - A Case Report

George R. ; Przybojewski S. ; Theron S. (2007)


Arterial pseudoaneurysm formation has been increasingly reported in HIV positive patients and generally surgery is indicated. We paced an endovascular stent in a femoral artery pseudoaneurysm of a 30-year-old HIV-positive male. Early results of this procedure are good. We believe that implantation of an endovascular stent graft can result in a shorter hospital stay and can significantly reduce morbidity for HIV-positive patients with pseudoaneurysms. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
