    Abstract

    An 83-year old man presented with recurrent pulmonary embolism originating from a distal left superficial femoral vein aneurysm despite therapeutic anticoagulation. We treated the patient transluminally using the technique of stent-assisted coil embolization via percutaneous transpopliteal venous access. Follow-up by serial duplex ultrasonography and computer tomographic venography (CTV) demonstrated resolution of the aneurysm. Our case demonstrates that stent-assisted coil embolization may effectively exclude a saccular venous aneurysm and prevent recurrent pulmonary embolization.
