Brachial Artery Aneurysm Following Open Repair of Posttraumatic False Aneurysm and Arteriovenous Fistula.

08:26 EDT 21st April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Brachial Artery Aneurysm Following Open Repair of Posttraumatic False Aneurysm and Arteriovenous Fistula."

True brachial artery aneurysms remain extremely rare and are most commonly related to repetitive blunt trauma. Although operative repair of false aneurysms is well established, management of true aneurysms is varied due to their rarity. We present a true brachial artery aneurysm, in a 55-year old male, which occurred some 22-years following the repair of a post-traumatic false aneurysm. Following arterial duplex and computerised tomography, aneurysectomy with reversed interposition vein graft was performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.


The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.

The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.

The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.
