Use of a Javid™ shunt in the
management of axillary artery injury as a complication of fracture of the
surgical neck of the humerus: a case report
Axillary artery injury is a rare
but severe complication of fractures of the surgical neck of the humerus.
We present a case of axillary
artery pseudoaneurysm secondary to such a fracture, in a 82-year-old white
woman, presenting 10 weeks after the initial injury, successfully treated with
subclavian to brachial reversed vein bypass together with simultaneous open
reduction and internal fixation of the fracture. We discuss the use of a Javid™
shunt during combined upper limb revascularisation and open reduction and
internal fixation of the fractured humerus.
This case highlights the
usefulness of a Javid™ shunt, over other forms of vascular shunts, in prompt
restoration of blood flow to effect limb salvage. It can be considered as a
temporary measure whilst awaiting definitive revascularisation which can be
performed following fracture fixation.
