Hypothenar hammer syndrome: an uncommon and correctable cause of digital ischemia

Lorelli D. R., Shepard A. D.

From the Divi­sion of Vas­cular Sur­gery Henry ­Ford Hos­pital Detroit, Mich­igan, USA

Hy­poth­enar hammer syn­drome (HHS) is the ­rare ­entity of ­finger ­ischemia sec­on­dary to ­embolic occlu­sion of the dig­ital ­arteries as a ­result of repet­i­tive ­trauma to the ­palmar ­ulnar ­artery. We ­report the ­case of a ­young man ­found to ­have dig­ital ­embolic com­pli­ca­tions ­from an ­ulnar ­artery aneu­rysm. ­This is ­thought to ­have devel­oped as a ­result of ­palmar ­trauma expe­ri­enced ­during mil­i­tary ­rifle ­drill exer­cises.
