ABSTRACT
Traumatic injury to the middle and distal thirds of the profunda femoris artery can be extremely difficult to surgically repair. The present article outlines an alternative form of treatment in which angiotherapeutic techniques of embolization are used in such an injury. A survey of the literature indicates that this may be the preferred method of therapy with lesions in this difficult area to surgically approach.
