DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2016-51694 A persistent sciatic artery (PSA) is an extremely rare congenital vascular malformation. Here we present the case of a 64-year-old woman with recurrent distal embolism of the right lower leg with symptoms of ischemic vascular complications. Computerized tomography and angiography revealed an entirely occluded distal PSA and an accompanying aneurysm. The PSA aneurysm was successfully treated using two self-expanding stent grafts to occlude the origin of the internal iliac artery. After arterial reconstruction, the patient" ischemic symptoms showed complete recovery.
