CASE REPORT OF DIGITAL NECROSIS DUE TO RADIAL ARTERY INJURY AND AN ASSOCIATION WITH THE ARTERIAL ANATOMY OF THE HAND

Luciano Zogbi

Abstract


Radial artery puncture, an invasive procedure, is frequently used in critically-ill patients. Although considered safe, severe and rare complications such as finger necrosis can occur. Here we report a case of finger necrosis and discuss its relationship with the anatomy of hand arteries
