Profunda femoris artery pseudoaneurysm after surgery and trauma.

Unay K, Poyanli O, Akan K, Poyanli A - Strategies Trauma Limb Reconstr (2008)

Bottom Line: Two cases of profunda femoris artery pseudoaneurysm with two rare causes are presented.The first one is a core decompression of femoral head for osteonecrosis and the second one is a proximal femur fracture nailing.Awareness and careful follow-up are the key issues for the early diagnosis.

ABSTRACT
Pseudoaneurysms of the profunda femoris artery have been reported following different types of trauma and from orthopedic procedures performed in the proximal femur. Two cases of profunda femoris artery pseudoaneurysm with two rare causes are presented. The first one is a core decompression of femoral head for osteonecrosis and the second one is a proximal femur fracture nailing. Awareness and careful follow-up are the key issues for the early diagnosis.

Fig3: The angiogram and embolization of pseudoaneurysm from the profunda femoris artery after the proximal nailing surgery

Mentions: On the 7th day, the patient started to bleed profusely from the femoral nailing wound with the appearance of a large thigh swelling. Hemoglobin level fell from 11.7 to 8.1 g/dl in 24 h. An angiogram was scheduled and performed on the same day which revealed a pseudoaneurysm from the profunda femoris artery with extravasation of contrast (Fig. 3). This was successfully and selectively embolized with glue (N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate). No additional problems were encountered. The patient was discharged from the hospital 10 days after the embolization.Fig. 3
