NC95.3Y/S85.2 Other specified injury of peroneal artery



Other specified injury of the peroneal artery is a rare condition caused by direct trauma to the leg, such as a fracture or strain, leading to an injury to the peroneal artery.


Diagnosis is made based on physical examination, imaging studies, and laboratory tests. The physical examination may reveal swelling, tenderness, discoloration, and decreased sensation in the area of the leg affected. Imaging studies such as MRI, CT scan, and Doppler ultrasound can help confirm the diagnosis. Laboratory tests such as arterial blood gas analysis and complete blood count can also be used.

Differential diagnosis

Other conditions that can present with similar symptoms include compartment syndrome, thrombosis, embolism, and arterial occlusion.


Treatment for other specified injury of the peroneal artery depends on the severity of the injury and may include rest, elevation, medications, and surgery. Surgical options may include bypass grafting, endovascular therapies, and amputation.


The prognosis for other specified injury of the peroneal artery is generally good with prompt and appropriate treatment. However, in severe cases, the prognosis may be poor, and long-term complications may include impaired circulation, gangrene, and limb loss.
