Abstract

A 57-year-old woman developed an aneurysm of a common digital artery and its branches, which caused pain from pressure on digital nerves. There was also evidence of median nerve compression at the wrist. Treatment included resection and vein graft connecting three vessels, and carpal tunnel release. Three years later, the graft is patent, and the patient's hand has excellent function with no recurrence of symptoms.
