Abstract

The incidence of pseudo aneurysm after total hip arthroplasty is extremely rare. The most common mechanism of vascular injury is due to direct trauma during the operative procedure, and the most reported cases are acute in presentation. We reported an unusual case of ruptured pseudo aneurysm and control of life-threatening intra-operative hemorrhage of the external iliac artery in a male patient, 68 years old, with displaced total hip arthroplasty (THA), planned for removal, occurring 2 years after the last hip surgery, in Armed Forces hospital, Southern region, Saudi Arabia. This case highlights the importance of prompt recognition of life-threatening intra-operative hemorrhage to save the patient's life and the limb.

Keywords

Resumo

A incidência de pseudoaneurisma após a artroplastia total de quadril é extremamente rara. O mecanismo mais comum de lesão vascular deve-se ao trauma direto durante o procedimento cirúrgico, e os casos mais relatados são de apresentação aguda. Relatamos um caso incomum de ruptura de pseudoaneurisma e controle de hemorragia intraoperatória com risco de morte da artéria ilíaca externa em um paciente do sexo masculino, de 68 anos, com artroplastia total do quadril deslocada, planejada para remoção, ocorrendo 2 anos depois da última cirurgia de quadril, no Hospital das Forças Armadas, região sul da Arábia Saudita. Este caso destaca a importância do pronto reconhecimento da hemorragia intraoperatória com risco de morte para salvar a vida e o membro do paciente.
