Axillary artery pseudoaneurysms are extremely rare. A 25-year-old male patient presented with pulsatile swelling that
occurred 1 year after the injury of the left underarm, and left-sided pain, weakness, and difficulty in controlling the left
hand. He had left axillary region with 7 x 5 x 3 cm3 pulsatile firm consistency, left hand 4/5 and left arm 3/5 power loss,
left hand holding no objects, and left arm not lifting up to the shoulder level. Color Doppler ultrasonography revealed
left axillary artery pseudoaneurysm with dimensions of 56 x 33 mm2 and luminal thrombosis about 40%. Axillary artery,
vein, and nerve suspension were taken after the left axillary artery was found and rotated. The organized thrombus within
the sac was removed. Subsequently, aneurysmectomy and axillary artery primer repair were completed. This study aimed
to discuss successful surgical repair and physiotherapy that started in the early period in the case that the arm and hand
movement limitations were eliminated.
