Abstract

Traumatic subclavian artery injury is a rare complication of clavicular fracture. An arterial injury can present as a pseudoaneurysm, which can cause a hypercoagulable state, thrombus formation, deep vein thrombosis, and distal embolism. We report a case of subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm that presented as embolic stroke in a 81-year-old man at 2015 1 month after clavicular fracture.
