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.
