Rup­tured anas­to­motic aneu­rysms ­after aor­to­bif­e­moral sur­gery are poten­tially ­life threat­ening. The pre­ferred tech­nique con­sists of resec­tion of the pseu­do­aneu­rysm and inter­po­si­tion of a new ­graft. We ­present a ­case in ­which an endo­vas­cular ­approach was ­chosen for treat­ment of a rup­tured ­femoral ­false aneu­rysm. An endo­graft was ­inserted and com­plete exclu­sion of the pseu­do­aneu­rysm was ­achieved.
