Abstract

The management of lower extremity vascular injuries has undergone dramatic changes over the last century. With the optimal management of femoral and popliteal injuries established, controversy still exists with respect to management of vascular injuries below the popliteal fossa, in the shank arterial vessels. These injuries are uncommon, often limb threatening, and usually require complex management decisions. Incidence of shank vessel injuries, imaging studies required for accurate and expedient diagnosis, determinants influencing the decision for repair or amputation, and details of techniques in surgical intervention are discussed.
