Abstract

MEIRA JR., Luiz Ernani; GOUVEA, Thalis Marcelo  and  MACEDO, Thiago Jardim de. Idiopathic radial artery aneurysm: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.4, pp.315-318. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492011000400011.

Radial artery aneurysms are extremely rare. Post-traumatic pseudoaneurysms are the vast majority. True radial artery aneurysms can be idiopathic, congenital, poststenotic, or associated with some pathologies, such as vasculitis and conjunctive tissue diseases. We report a case of an idiopathic aneurysm of the radial artery in a three-year-old child who was submitted to surgical resection after a complete diagnostic approach.

Keywords : aneurysm; radial artery; child.
