Abstract

Arterial rupture subsequent to angioplasty occurs in about 5% of cases. Thrombolysis with re-establishment of flow without resolving underlying anatomic defects such as hepatic arterial stenosis leads to re-thrombosis. We present a case of arterial anastomotic rupture after thrombolysis and angioplasty of an underlying anastomotic hepatic arterial stenosis. Both the underlying anatomic defect and the rupture were resolved successfully with placement of a stent-graft, with a resultant patent artery for 1 year after the procedure.
