A case of endoluminal repair of vein and artery axillary rupture after reduction of shoulder dislocation in an 83-year-old woman is reported. The lesions were repaired successfully with two cover stents (JOSTENT and Passager). Endovascular treatment of such vascular injuries seems to be feasible and safe, though further investigation is warranted.
