ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research on the abnormalities encountered when performing computed tomography angiography of the extremities for the assessment of arterial injuries owing to blunt and penetrating trauma. Some consequences or complications resulting from failure to diagnose arterial injuries associated with blunt include uncontrolled bleeding and end organ ischemia. The use of conventional angiography and multidetector-row computed tomography in diagnosing arterial injuries in the extremities is discussed.
