A 24-year-old woman with a right infraclavicular gunshot wound developed an axillary artery pseudoaneurysm. She was successfully treated by using a 5 cm Hemobahn stent-graft with a diameter of 6 mm. Postimplantation arteriography revealed normal flow through the axillary artery without evidence of leakage of contrast medium. Five months after the procedure, stenoses developed within the stent-graft owing to intimal hyperplasia and were treated by balloon angioplasty. The patient has been followed up symptom-free for 6 months after the second procedure.
