Abstract

In children, surgery for radial artery pseudoaneurysm (PA) may be followed by growth retardation of the hand because of inadequate blood flow. We believe this is the first report of a child with PA of the radial artery cured by compression bandage. Conservative management is a safe and valuable initial treatment option for uncomplicated radial PA.
