PMID:  7055774     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Despite the common occurrence of trauma to the hand, arterial aneurysms in this area are rare. The authors describe the symptoms, signs and microvascular treatment of a true aneurysm of the ulnar artery in the palm of an 18-year-old youth. Although there is no clear evidence that vascular restoration is needed after resection of the aneurysm, the authors believe that reconstruction of the ulnar artery using microvascular techniques will ensure that blood supply to the digits is adequate.
