Acute Arterial Embolization Following Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Report of Two Cases and Literature Review
It is suggested that surgeons should pay adequate attention to high-risk patients with TKA, as two patients suffered the loss of sensation and movement of the right lower limb and the disappearance of dorsalis pedis artery pulsation after operation.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Arterial Occlusion after Knee Arthroplasty: The Sooner, the Better
A case of successful treatment of acute arterial occlusion of the popliteal artery after TKA by emergent balloon angioplasty is presented, and a review and analysis of published cases with this complication is conducted.
Delayed Arterial Occlusion Presenting as Foot Drop Following Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty in a Varus Knee: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
We present a 69-year-old male with osteoarthritis of a varus mechanically aligned left knee that developed delayed arterial thrombosis after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) requiring stenting
The prevalence of arterial and venous abnormalities in asymptomatic patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty
In most patients, TKA operations can be performed without a vascular comorbidity; however, even asymptomatic patients may carry vascular risks, and recognizing the silent patients with color Doppler ultrasound can be helpful and feasible in patients undergoing TKA to reduce complication rate and to take precautions.
Vascular Injuries in Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
A meta-analysis of the overall rate of vascular injuries after total knee arthroplasties and a systematic review of specific major and minor vessel injuries found that amputation and long-term neurological complications are common complications after a vascular injury associated with a total kneeArthroplasty.


Acute Popliteal Artery Occlusion after Revision Total Knee Arthroplasty
It was possible that the arterial disease that accompanied the vascular endothelium injury such as pseudoaneurysm had existed since the previous surgery at another hospital and was destroyed by the surgical procedure, which led to the formation of thrombosis and arterial occlusion.
Acute arterial occlusion after total knee arthroplasty
The observation demonstrates that arterial thromboses can occur regardless of the duration of ischemia and that surgery should therefore be performed without ischemic conditions if risk factors are present.
Acute arterial occlusion associated with total knee arthroplasty
In a patient with advanced arteriosclerosis, knee arthroplasty should be performed without a tourniquet, and intra-operative manipulation should be done cautiously because of the potential for intimal disruption.
Acute Arterial Occlusion After Total Knee Arthroplasty
The case of one patient who had mild peroneal palsy and developed acute arterial occlusion 9 days postoperatively while on the inpatient rehabilitation service is described, and prompt aggressive management restored arterial circulation to the lower limb.
Popliteal artery thrombosis following total knee arthroplasty managed successfully with percutaneous intervention
Acute popliteal artery thrombosis is a rare complication following total knee arthroplasty (TKA), with sequelae including critical limb ischaemia and amputation. We report the case of a 54-year-old
Arterial complications after knee arthroplasty: 4 cases and a review of the literature.
Preoperative risk factor evaluation as well as rapid and adequate handling in case of bleeding and/or ischemic complications pre- and postoperatively are crucial, and Cooperation with a vascular surgeon is also essential.
Arterial occlusion after total knee arthroplasty: successful management of an uncommon complication by percutaneous thrombus aspiration.
Immediate intervention prevented ischemic muscular necrosis, resulting in full recovery of the limb, and perioperative popliteal artery thrombosis was treated successfully with percutaneous thrombus aspiration and balloon dilation.
