Penetrating aortic trauma is associated with high mortality rates. We report the case of a 24-year-old man who presented with a self-inflicted abdominal aortic penetration injury, resulting in a pseudoaneurysm. Rather uniquely, he was managed through prophylactic stenting to his abdominal aorta; this case was also rare in that there were remarkably no associated visceral injuries. Stenting was preferred because of risks of an aortic graft in a young man. A 14-mm Atrium Advanta (TM) stent was deployed, and angiography confirmed adequate exclusion of the pseudoaneurysm. He had no complications at follow-up.
