Abstract

An injury to the brachial artery from humeral shaft fracture is uncommon but requires immediate surgery to restore the blood flow. We report a case of endovascular stenting to repair a brachial artery occlusion caused by humeral shaft fracture in a 53 year old male with a review of the relevant literature.
