Abstract

Vascular injuries resulting from arthroscopic surgeries are rare with a reported incidence of 0.005% of elective orthopedic procedures. We report a case of a 49-year-old male who developed a deep brachial artery pseudoaneurysm following an arthroscopic shoulder debridement and lysis of adhesions. He was successfully embolized with resolution of the pseudoaneurysm within 6 weeks of treatment. A review of the literature demonstrates that pseudoaneurysm formation after arthroscopic procedures is rare and pseudoaneurysms of the deep brachial artery have yet to be reported.
