ABSTRACT
Arterial vascular complications following knee replacement are uncommon with reported incidence ranging from 0.03 to 0.12%. The complication rate is rising with increased number of primary and revision total knee replacements. Vascular complications following TKR can result in arterial thrombosis, AV fistula, haemorrhage, pseudoaneurysm and arterial transection. They are associated with significant morbidity and can be limb-threatening. Early recognition and management of vascular injury is essential although some times its presentation may be delayed. We report a case of pseudoaneurysm arising from inferior lateral genicular branch of the anterior tibial artery after revision right total knee replacement.
