Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aneurysms of the hand are uncommon lesions. The most common location is the ulnar artery. We present a case of a young female who consulted us for a hand mass with a history of trauma to the hand. Pre-operative arteriogram showed a superficial palmar arch aneurysm. The mass was excised and the arch was reconstructed using a reversed Y-shaped vein graft. Fourteen months after surgery, there was no recurrence of the aneurysm and the patient only reported occasional cold intolerance.
