PMID:  3584193     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Arterial complications occurring in association with knee replacement surgery are rare, even though most patients having this operation are elderly and therefore more likely to have peripheral vascular disease. We report a patient who developed an arterial complication during the course of a knee replacement operation, as well as the results of a survey of Fellows of the Australian Orthopaedic Association. Recommendations to minimise this serious complication are proposed.
