Eur J Radiol. 2001 Jun;38(3):205-8. doi: 10.1016/s0720-048x(00)00259-x.


Traumatic aneurysms of the left subclavian artery and transverse cervical artery, subsequent to penetrating gunshot wound were diagnosed by angiography in 35-year-old patient. Subclavian artery aneurysm was treated by insertion of the Memotherm bare stent, whereas the false aneurysm of the transverse cervical artery was embolized with Gianturco's coils. The follow up examinations at 6 and 12 months showed good patency of subclavian artery.
