ABSTRACT
The use of a single crutch with weight bearing and pressure on the axilla is presented as a cause of thrombotic occlusion of the axillary artery in two cases. Detachment of the intima was present in both cases. Resection of the torn intima and fixation of its distal edges in one case and resection of the damaged part of the vessel with an interposition graft in the other, together with thrombectomy, gave excellent results in both patients. The possible mechanism of intimal damage predisposing to thrombosis of the affected artery is discussed. The use of forearm crutches seems to be the simplest way to prevent such complications.
