Pseudoaneurysms occurring as a result of fractures giving rise to the appearance of pseudotumors: a short series

Pseudoaneurysms occurring as a result of fractures giving rise to the appearance of pseudotumors: a short series

Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology 30(5): 1020-1024

Pseudoaneurysms are focal enlargements of the vascular lumen due to partial or complete disruption of the arterial wall. These are an uncommon complication of fractures. The presence of a pseudoaneurysm adjacent to a fracture fragment can cause a pressure effect. This pressure not only impairs fracture healing but sometimes can erode the adjacent bone, producing the appearance of a pseudotumor. We present two such cases and discuss the management of these patients.
