In high-risk patients endovascular repair of a pseudoaneurysm with a stented graft is a safe and reasonable treatment option that can preclude significant morbidity and shorten hospital stay. We report a case of pseudoaneurysm of the subclavian artery after internal jugular vein cannulation that was treated successfully with an endovascularly inserted, stented graft. The case report highlights the importance of recognizing this unusual but serious complication of percutaneous internal jugular vein catheterization through careful clinical examination, prompt duplex scanning, and arteriography.
