Emergency endovascular stent-grafting for infected pseudoaneurysm of brachial artery.


:The use of covered stents in an infected field is controversial. It is generally recommended that infected aneurysms be treated using autografts or allografts. We report a case of infected brachial pseudoaneurysms that developed after medical debridement of a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)-infected wound of the right arm and emergency brachial artery bypass-grafting using the saphenous vein, which was successfully treated by endovascular stent-grafting followed by antibiotic administration. The present case suggests that endovascular stent-grafting prevents rupture and occlusion of infected aneurysms and enables the continued administration of antibiotics.
