Primary stenting in femoropopliteal lesions of intermediate length has recently shown favorable outcomes. However, stent fractures are a concern after bare metal stent implantation. The incidence of stent fracture varies widely (ranging from 2% to 65%) depending on factors such as the treated lesions or stent type and may potentially lead to various complications. We reported a case of stent fracture with complete dislocation combined with recurrent in-stent reocclusion and aneurysm formation in a patient with occlusive disease of the femoropopliteal artery, which was successfully treated with self-expandable endovascular stent graft.
