We present a case of pseudoaneurysm of the radial artery that occurred after the removal of a plate from the distal shaft of the radius. This case illustrates that surgery in the proximity of the radial artery requires careful preoperative planning and meticulous techniques. Tourniquet release before wound closure would prevented this complication. (Hong Kong Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery 2001;5(2):138-140.)
