TORNQUIST, Fábio André; LEOPARDO, Carlos César; SEGALA, Tibiriçá Cecim  and  HAMID, Ali Juma Abdalla Abel. Vascular complication of osteochondroma: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.1, pp.92-96. ISSN 1677-5449.

Osteochondromas or exostoses are the most common benign tumors of the bone. They occur during the growth period and are rarely responsible for vascular complications. We report a case of a patient with osteochondroma in the lower limb and vascular complication caused by compression of the popliteal artery. The patient complained of pain at the right lower limb during angiography and radiography screening, which identified the vascular lesion and the bone tumor. A simultaneous surgical treatment of both lesions was performed with good postoperative evolution.

Keywords : Osteochondromas; vascular complications; arterial occlusion.
