Abstract

Damage to the superficial femoral artery with the subsequent formation of a false aneurysm is a very rare sequelae of a femur fracture. Peripheral oedema and pain of the limb is interpreted as a normal result of the fracture. With a false aneurysm, it is possible to easily omit the symptoms of reduced circulation to the lower limbs, which can be caused by proper circulation through the deep femoral artery (profunda femoris artery). In this case we nailed a fracture with a simultaneous procedure on an aneurysm of the superficial femoral artery.
