Traumatic Pseudoaneurysm of the Axillary Artery.

See More

Pseudo aneurysms of the axillary artery are rare but are potentially dangerous lesions that threaten the upper extremity with vascular and neurologic compromise. A case of pseudoaneurysm of the axillary artery after a pocketknife stab wound to the left shoulder is presented. The lesion was confirmed with selective angiography of the axillary artery. Successful surgical treatment by aneurysmectomy with subclavian-axillary bypass was achieved. A brief history of these aneurysms and their pathogenesis, presentation, diagnosis, and treatment are reviewed.
