Aneurysmal degeneration after peripheral angioplasty is a potentially serious complication. In this case, the patient underwent repeated angioplasty of a prior vein bypass graft utilizing a paclitaxel-coated balloon. He subsequently developed a progressive aneurysmal degeneration, threatening his bypass, which ultimately required an urgent exclusion with a covered stent. This case represents a rare complication of peripheral bypass graft related to percutaneous intervention as well as paclitaxel-coated devices and warns other practitioners of the increased scrutiny and caution one should exercise in the use of such interventions.
