Point of Care Ultrasound Diagnosis of Pseudoaneurysm of an Upper Extremity Arteriovenous Dialysis Graft

Forrest Lindsay-McGinn, MD; Nathaniel C. Reisinger, MD – We describe the rapid diagnosis with point of care ultrasound (POCUS) of two acute pseudoaneurysms of a bovine arteriovenous dialysis graft with superimposed cellulitis in a 44-year old male patient who presented with pain over his upper arm graft site. POCUS evaluation decreased the time to diagnosis and vascular surgery consultation.
