Abstract

Although not uncommon after penetrating vascular trauma, arterial pseudoaneurysms rarely develop following blunt trauma. A patient is described in whom indirect trauma led to pseudoaneurysm of the profunda femoris artery, and persistent bleeding required surgical intervention. In this case, the coexistence of significant aortic valvular regurgitation suggests that wide pulse pressure may predispose to this arterial complication.
