Resumo

Os aneurismas do tronco tibiofibular são raros e consistem principalmente em pseudoaneurismas. Os autores descrevem um caso incomum de pseudoaneurisma do tronco tibiofibular secundário a endocardite bacteriana diagnosticada e tratada vários anos antes. Após a exclusão de um processo infeccioso ativo, o paciente foi tratado com sucesso através do implante percutâneo de um stent recoberto. O tratamento endovascular, neste contexto, apresentou uma alternativa segura e eficaz.

Abstract

Tibioperoneal trunk aneurysms are rare and the majority of them are pseudoaneurysms This report describes an unusual case of a pseudoaneurysm secondary to bacterial endocarditis diagnosed and treated several years previously. After ruling out ongoing infection, the patient was successfully treated by percutaneous covered stent implantation. In this scenario, the use of endovascular techniques offered a safe and effective alternative treatment.

Keywords

pseudoaneurysm; tibioperoneal trunk; endocarditis; endovascular.
