Pseudoaneurysm Development after Drug-Eluting Balloon (DEB) Angioplasty of a Venous Femoropopliteal Bypass Graft

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Endovascular recanalization of occluded venous femoropopliteal bypass grafts is widely used because of easy access. This case report describes pseudoaneurysm developing 4 weeks after endovascular recanalization of an occluded in situ venous femoropopliteal graft. The patient was treated for a popliteal aneurysm with a venous femoropopliteal bypass graft, which subsequently occluded. Four weeks after DEB PTA, the occluded graft developed 3 pseudoaneurysms. Impaired vessel wall healing after intraluminal paclitaxel administration could have contributed to this. This case adds a perspective to the choice of treatment of occluded venous femoropopliteal bypass grafts.
