­False aneu­rysm of the pro­funda fem­oris ­artery ­rarely ­occurs and is a ­serious com­pli­ca­tion fol­lowing ­femur frac­ture. A 39-year-old man who devel­oped a ­false aneu­rysm ­arising ­from the per­fo­rating ­branch of the pro­funda fem­oris ­artery fol­lowing an ­external fix­a­tion for a com­pli­cated ­femur frac­ture was pre­sented. Clin­ical diag­nosis was con­firmed by selec­tive arte­rial angio­graphy ­after occur­rence of sig­nif­i­cant he­mor­rhage and ­swelling of the ­injured ­thigh. The ­false aneu­rysm was ­treated by liga­tion of the per­fo­rating ­branch of the pro­funda fem­oris ­artery and exci­sion of the aneu­rysmal sac via the ­medial ­approach. Clin­ical ­status of the ­patient was ­uneventful post­op­er­a­tively. The ­right ­thigh ­swelling ­decreased rap­idly fol­lowing the oper­a­tion in 1 ­week. The ­patient was dis­charged on the 10th post­op­er­a­tive day ­with ­external fix­a­tion. ­False aneu­rysm in a ­branch of the pro­funda fem­oris ­artery is a ­very ­rare ­status fol­lowing appli­ca­tion of the ­external fix­ator due to com­pli­cated ­femur frac­ture. ­Related lit­er­a­tures and inter­ven­tions ­were ­reviewed on the ­basis of ­this ­case.
