PMID:  1404066     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The first reported case of multiple aneurysms of both the palmar arch and a proper digital artery is described. A palmar arch aneurysm was excised, and two end-to-end anastomoses were necessary to restore the blood flow. Microsurgical repair was the only possible treatment in this case. The authors believe that the vascular anatomy should always be restored as naturally as possible. No treatment was necessary for the more distal aneurysms.
