NC56.5Z/S65.5 Injury of blood vessel of other finger, unspecified



Injury of a blood vessel of the finger can occur as a result of a direct trauma, such as a crush or deep laceration, or from a repetitive motion such as typing or gripping.


Injury of a blood vessel of the finger is typically diagnosed through physical examination and medical imaging such as an X-ray or ultrasound.

Differential diagnosis

Other possible causes of finger pain may include soft tissue injury, such as a sprain or strain, or infection.


Treatment may involve rest, elevation of the affected finger, and the application of a splint or other device to protect the finger from further injury. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the damaged blood vessel.


The prognosis for injury of a blood vessel of the finger depends on the severity of the injury. With prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment, most patients can expect a full recovery.
