NC95.3Z/S85.2 Injury of peroneal artery, unspecified



Peroneal artery injury is most commonly caused by trauma, such as a direct blow to the lower leg, or an ankle sprain. It may also occur due to a medical procedure, such as an aneurysm repair.


The diagnosis of peroneal artery injury is usually made based on physical examination and imaging studies, such as an angiogram or MRI. The physical examination may reveal a pulsatile mass along the course of the artery or a decrease in blood flow to the leg.

Differential diagnosis

The differential diagnosis for peroneal artery injury includes other vascular injuries, such as deep vein thrombosis, arterial occlusion, and aneurysm rupture.


Peroneal artery injury is treated with either open or endovascular repair, depending on the severity of the injury. Open repair involves surgically repairing the damaged artery, while endovascular repair involves using a catheter to repair the artery.


The prognosis for peroneal artery injury is generally good, provided that the injury is treated promptly and properly. If left untreated, it can lead to severe complications, such as limb loss or ischemia.
