Nonoperative management of a traumatic peroneal artery false aneurysm.


The standard approach to management of traumatic false aneurysms is operative. This report describes successful treatment of a traumatic peroneal artery aneurysm following a gunshot wound in a 29-year-old man by an intraluminal steel coil occlusion technique. The coil was guided through the popliteal artery and aneurysm into the distal peroneal artery via a percutaneously placed catheter: following disengagement of the coil the outflow tract of the aneurysm was occluded, and another passed and released into the proximal peroneal artery occluded the inflow tract.
