AGUILERA-SALGADO, A. et al. Microsurgical treatment for ulnar artery aneurysm in pediatric patient. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2015, vol.41, n.3, pp.305-308. ISSN 1989-2055.

A 6 year old male patient with history of right hand trauma one month before his initial consultation, presented with a palpable, non tender, pulsate mass in the hypothenar region. A doppler ultrasound was performed, which reported a well demarcated, heterogeneous vascular soft tissue mass. Based on the patient's history, the physical examination and the doppler ultrasound, a surgical intervention was granted in order to avoid possible complications. Surgery demonstrated a true ulnar aneurysm with dimensions of 3 x 3 cm, which was resected. The ulnar artery was reconstructed with a termino-terminal venous graft, without any incident.
