INTRODUCTION: Tibial intramedullary nailing remains a common tibial fracture fixation method. Tibial nailing indications continue to expand. Neurovascular complications from tibial nailing have been described; however, the proximity of distal tibial locking bolts to the anterior tibial artery (ATA) variants has not. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 52 cadaveric legs were dissected identifying three common ATA variants. Each ATA variant received an intraluminal wire to facilitate fluoroscopic identification...

BACKGROUND: In total knee arthroplasty, it is better to use more than one reference point for correct alignment of the components. By measuring the distances of Achilles tendon (AT) and other conventional landmarks from the mechanical axis in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the ankle, we aimed to demonstrate that, as a novel landmark which can help for correct alignment in the coronal plane, AT is a better option than other landmarks. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective study was done on 53 ankle MRIs that met the criteria for inclusion to the study among 158 ankle MRIs...

BACKGROUND Popliteal fossa pseudoaneurysms as a result of trauma are not uncommon. However, spontaneous pseudoaneurysms as a result of non-traumatic rupture of posterior tibial artery (PTA), anterior tibial artery (ATA), or tibioperoneal trunk (TPT) artery segment are extremely rare. We report a case of spontaneous popliteal fossa pseudoaneurysm resulting from spontaneous avulsion of the ATA and transection of the TPT. Despite a thorough workup, no underlying associated disease was found. The extreme rarity of this disease presentation prompted us to report this case...

Purpose Computer tomography angiography is used to assess peripheral arterial disease. Its preference over other imaging modalities is based upon its rapid acquisition and high spatial resolution, along with ease of access. TASC II have recently updated their vascular lesion classification to include infrapopliteal lesions, and our aim is to assess the reproducibility of TASC II on infrapopliteal disease when using computer tomography angiography. Methods A retrospective analysis of a series of consecutive computer tomography angiographies was performed by seven assessors (three consultant radiologists, two consultant vascular surgeons and two vascular specialty trainees)...

Thromboembolic disease is an important and frequent complication in patients with the nephrotic syndrome (NS), and the consequences are often severe. Usually, the venous system is affected. Arterial thrombosis has rarely been reported and occurs mainly in children. We report the case of a 27-year-old man with a history of NS due to focal and segmental glomerulosclerosis resistant to steroids and cyclosporine, admitted for bilateral pain in the calves. Aortogram revealed a suspended thrombus in the abdominal aorta just below the origin of the renal arteries with embolism into the left tibioperoneal trunk and the right anterior tibial artery...

The need for an experienced vascular surgeon in the combat setting is not questioned; however, there is a paucity of literature exploring the utility of vascular surgery during an elective humanitarian mission. We herein present a case of a post-traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery treated in the context of a humanitarian mission during Pacific Partnership 2015 aboard the United States Naval Ship Mercy. This case report demonstrates the necessity and unique opportunities for vascular surgeons to participate in humanitarian surgery...

Arterial complications following total knee arthroplasty are rare but carry a high risk of significant morbidity and mortality. Herein, the authors report a case of pseudoaneurysm in a branch of a high-division anterior tibial artery caused by laceration by the retractor following primary total knee arthroplasty in a 72-year-old woman. The patient presented with an unexplained hematoma and an enlarging swelling, with pallor and acute hemorrhage on the first postoperative day. The diagnosis was confirmed by arteriography and the patient was successfully treated using endovascular embolization without long-term complications...

A 53-year-old woman underwent arthroscopic ankle debridement for posttraumatic arthrofibrosis 2 years following a bimalleolar ankle fracture. Twelve months postarthroscopy, the patient returned to physical therapy with a 2-week history of pain and prominent swelling to her anterior ankle. Urgent follow-up was arranged with an orthopaedic surgeon, who ordered a radiograph and magnetic resonance imaging, which demonstrated a large heterogeneous mass. Doppler ultrasound was also ordered and confirmed the mass to be a pseudo-aneurysm of the anterior tibial artery...

Vascular injuries associated with the tibial nailing have been reported in few case reports. We here report a unique case of anterior tibial artery (ATA) pseudoaneurysm caused by the second proximal coronal interlocking bolt. We found that the position of interlocking bolts on the nail brings them very close to the anatomical positions of arteries in leg. The reports of ATA injury by interlocking bolts highlight the need for reconsidering the nail design and screw hole positions.

Purpose. This study was conducted to identify the surface projection of the interosseous foramen and associated structures of the proximal leg using the average clinician's thumb width as a quick measurement to assist in differential diagnosis and treatment. Methods. Twelve cadavers (5 males and 7 females, age range = 51-91 years, and mean age = 76.9) were dissected for analysis. Location and size of interosseous foramen, location of anterior tibial artery, location of deep fibular nerve, and corresponding arterial branches were measured and converted into thumb widths...

We present the case of a 23 year-old male who sustained an anterior tibial artery pseudoaneurysm after an apparently innocuous soccer injury. The patient presented with sudden onset severe pain and swelling one week after the injury. The diagnosis was made using duplex ultrasound, and confirmed with CT angiography. Definitive management consisted of endovascular platinum microcoiling. One year later, the patient is asymptomatic and remains active. A review of the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of arterial pseudoaneurysm is presented...

OBJECTIVE: The achievement of single vessel inflow to the wound is an acceptable end point of peripheral vascular intervention for patients with critical limb ischemia (CLI) with tissue loss. However, CLI patients often have multitibial artery lesions. We evaluated the clinical effects of single or double tibial artery revascularization for CLI patients. METHODS: This study was conducted retrospectively in a single center. Between April 2007 and January 2015, we treated 123 CLI patients (137 limbs) who had lesions in both the anterior tibial artery and the posterior tibial artery...

We described an 11-year-old boy suffering from pediatric anaplastic lymphoma kinase-positive anaplastic large cell lymphoma with heart metastasis at diagnosis and arterial tumor embolisms during chemotherapy. Both the heart metastasis and pericardial effusion showed improvement with prednisolone, but numbness and pallor sequentially developed in his lower extremities during the first course of chemotherapy. Contrast-enhanced imaging revealed occlusion of the right anterior tibial artery and left popliteal artery...

A 77-year-old male with subacute right foot ischemia was treated with endovascular therapy to relieve total thrombosis of the pedal arch extending from the dorsalis pedis of the anterior tibial artery into the posterior tibial artery, plantar segment. Because the procedure was only partially successful, rivaroxaban was used for thrombolytic treatment resulting in improvement of the patient's ischemic pain and avoidance of gangrenous progression and surgical amputation. This is the first report describing successful recanalization of pedal arch arterial thrombosis using rivaroxaban in a patient after suboptimal results of endovascular therapy...

Patients scheduled for microsurgical reconstruction of the lower leg often receive preoperative assessment of recipient vessels using angiography. However, no clear standard is available for evaluating angiographic results to predict free-flap survival outcomes. We developed angiographic criteria for predicting surgical outcome in patients with lower-extremity peripheral arterial disease based on abnormality of the anterior tibial and posterior tibial arteries. We applied the criteria to a small number of patients scheduled for microsurgical reconstruction of the lower leg...

Anterior tibial pseudoaneurysm is a rare complication after interlocking screw insertion in tibial nailing. We present the case of a 28-year-old male patient with this complication with a 6-week delay after tibial nailing of a right tibial fracture type 42-A1 of the Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO/ASIF) classification. On presentation to our emergency department, the patient's complaints were solemnly intermittent pain and occasional swelling of his proximal lower leg. Deep vein thrombosis, compartment syndrome, and implant dislocation were ruled out, and the patient was discharged after his symptoms improved without further intervention...

Arterial pseudoaneurysm of the lower limb is an infrequent entity, particularly in the infrapopliteal segment. It is commonly associated to vascular repairs or follows a localized arterial lesion, a fracture or a surgical procedure. There is little information in Mexico about this entity in cases involving the anterior tibial artery, and secondary to trauma and osteosynthesis. Given that sudden bleeding due to rupture of the pseudoaneurysm is a possible catastrophic outcome for the viability of the segment, it is important to timely detect and diagnose the pseudoaneurysm...

We present the case of a 75-year-old patient with asymptomatic gastro-duodenal artery aneurism (GAA) that was coiled through the left femoral artery. The gastro-duodenal artery (GDA) was then embolized. Following the intervention, the patient'™s left foot became cold. A sub-acute ischemia caused by a stenotic effect in the left external iliac artery and by lower limb embolic phenomena caused by the introductor, was diagnosed. A thromboembolectomy of the popliteal, anterior and posterior tibial and peroneal arteries was performed with a Fogarty catheter with good results...
