Acta chirurgica Belgica

The authors report one case of false aneurysm of the right external iliac artery following perforation of the acetabulum by a Böhler nail, which was placed twenty-two years before. Clinical signs were a no-pulsating tumor of the right fossa iliaca, deep venous thrombosis of the right leg and severe anemia. Treatment included resection of the false aneurysm, suture of the arterial wound and removal of the Böhler nail. The authors report the place held by vascular lesions in bone surgery, and diagnostic difficulties due to the delayed clinical manifestations.
