A 17-year-old man was seen with an expanding false aneurysm of the right axillary artery. This was treated by an intraluminal covered-stent introduced through the brachial artery via an 11F sheath. The covered-stent was constructed from a segment of great saphenous vein anchored in the axillary artery by a 29 mm Palmaz stent. Postoperative arteriography and duplex scanning confirmed normal flow through the axillary artery with complete exclusion of the aneurysm. Postoperative recovery was uneventful.
