Abstract

Aneurysms of the foot arteries are rare. A case of a true dorsalis pedis artery aneurysm in a 69-year-old man, with no history of local trauma or injury on his foot, is presented. Clinical examination and ultrasonic imaging confirmed the aneurysm. Dorsalis pedis artery aneurysm was resected and an end-to-end anastomosis was performed, without complications. Arterial duplex scan findings, operative procedure, and literature review are presented and discussed.
