Infrapopliteal pseudoaneurysms can occur after trauma. In recent years, endovascular repair has been increasingly used to treat infrapopliteal pseudoaneurysms. Nevertheless, there has been no covered stent specifically for small peripheral vessels. Here, we report a case of a 65-year-old male with a pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery which was managed with a physician-modified covered stent. 6 months after the procedure, the mass had completely disappeared and the vascular anatomy of the calf is well preserved.
