Abstract

Pseudoaneurysms developing around the foot and ankle are known to be an uncommon complication following surgery. We present a case of a pseudoaneurysm following ankle surgery for a tibial plafond fracture and comprehensively review the literature with emphasis on their anatomic location, aetiology and treatment options.
