We report a case of a 48-year-old man with a rare complication of stent fracture and large pseudoaneurysm in the external iliac artery, after single self-expanding stent implantation seven years ago. No risk factors of stent fracture were found except the fact that the initial lesion was a chronic total occlusion needing a long (150 mm) single stent implantation in the common and external iliac artery. Our patient was successfully managed using a stent-in-stent manoeuvre by implantation of two joint covered stents.
