ROCHA-LIMA, Artur José; MARQUES, Marcus Vinícius  and  GABRIELE, Cláudio. Lateral thoracic artery pseudoaneurysm due to blunt chest trauma. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.1, pp.74-77. ISSN 1677-5449.

Pseudoaneurysm, or false aneurysm, is a clinical entity caused by arterial wall rupture, with blood extravasation contained by neighboring tissues. We report a case of a 64-year-old female patient, who was referred due to a rare right lateral thoracic artery lesion leading to pseudoaneurysm secondary to blunt trauma. The authors did not find a similar case in the literature.

Keywords : Pseudoaneurysm; surgery; complications; aneurysm; artery.
