BACKGROUND Pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery (ATA) after ankle arthroscopy is an uncommon complication but can cause unexpected consequences. However, its contributing factor is not fully understood. HYPOTHESIS Anatomic factors, such as ATA variations and the distance between the ATA and joint capsule, may contribute to the occurrence of pseudoaneurysm. STUDY DESIGN Case series; Level of evidence, 4. METHODS The magnetic resonance images and medical records of 358 ankle cases… CONTINUE READING
