Knee Surgery and Vascular Lesion: Cases Series and Literature Review
Abstract: Iatrogenic vascular injuries to the knee in orthopedic surgery are a major concern for surgeons and a major problem for patients. They are fortunately rare, but it is equally difficult to process. The first decisions taken as soon as you confirm the diagnosis are the most important for the patient’s recovery. We did a review of the cases in our center where they were present simultaneously in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Vascular Surgery.
