Purpose: To report successful percutaneous repair of a peripheral mycotic aneurysm as a bridge to standard surgical therapy. Case Report: An aneurysm of the left common femoral artery was diagnosed in a 43-year-old man with subacute infective endocarditis. A Jostent stent-graft was percutaneously deployed to exclude the mycotic lesion. Computed tomography at 8 months after the procedure documented aneurysm regression and stent-graft patency without evidence of infection. Arteriography at 18 months has confirmed continued stent-graft patency and the patient remains asymptomatic. Conclusions: The standard management of mycotic aneurysms is usually by surgical resection and repair. However, this case suggests that percutaneous stent-graft implantation may be an option for the treatment of mycotic aneurysms.
