These pseudoaneurysms are seldomly located in the middle one-third of the posterior tibial artery. In recent years, in the management strategy of post-traumatic pseudoaneurysms, endovascular repair, as being an anatomical and less invasive modality, has increasingly gained more attention, compared to open repair. Herein, we present a 22-year-old male case of a delayed symptomatic post-firearm injury pseudoaneurysm of the posterior tibial artery treated with an endovascular stent graft in the light of literature data.
