Introduction Pseudoaneurysms (PSAs) are uncommon, but can occur as a complication of orthopedic procedures, usually associated with femur surgery. This report describes successful management of a PSA of the deep femoral artery (DFA) with an endovascular stent graft. Report This case reports an injury that presented as a false aneurysm secondary to a fractured neck of femur, which was initially confused with hematoma. Imaging confirmed the diagnosis of PSA, and the decision was taken to implant an endovascular stent graft. Discussion The endovascular stent graft was implanted based on radiological, anatomical, and clinical parameters. This case supports the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of stenting for PSA of the DFA.
