Aortic rupture during balloon angioplasty for in-stent restenosis without attempting to overexpand it is a rarity. We report a case of a young woman with aortoarteritis who had aortic rupture during angioplasty for in-stent restenosis. The balloon used was of the same diameter as the previously implanted stent and was completely within the stent during inflation. The disruption was successfully treated by percutaneous placement of a self-expandable endovascular stent graft.
