Fig. 3. Procedure details. (A) A 0.014-inch guidewire (GW) with a length of 2 cm was attached to the 8-mm expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) graft beveled at the proximal portion. (B) To properly position the ePTFE graft at the pseudoaneurysm, two 3-0 Prolene sutures (P1 and P2) were attached to the beveled side of graft. Another 3-0 Prolene suture (P3) was suspended on the opposite side of the ePTFE graft to maintain the graft. A 0.035-inch GW was inserted though the surgeon-modified graft. (C) The graft was placed at the site of the pseudoaneurysm (arrows). The radio-opaque marker is visible at the orifice of the pseudoaneurysm (dotted arrow). (D) Completion angiography showing complete sealing of pseudoaneurysm (arrow). (E) Finally, patch angioplasty was completed. SMG, surgeon-modified graft.
