Abstract

Football and ankle soft tissue injuries are common occurrences. However, traumatic peroneal false aneurysm is quite a rare entity with only a handful of cases reported in the literature. A case of traumatic false aneurysm of the distal peroneal artery is described in which an anatomic anomaly of the distal peroneal artery crossing the ankle joint may have been a predisposing factor. A technique for surgical approach is also described for the particular location of the lesion.

AbbreviationsCTAComputed Tomography Angiogram
