Introduction

In contrast to the adult population, acute limb ischemia secondary to arterial thromboembolism in children is typically provoked by trauma or iatrogenic injury to the vessel [1]. In major traumas, arterial injury is associated with less than one percent of all cases and usually occurs in conjunction with long bone fractures [2]. Iatrogenic cases are most often related to catheterization for purposes of invasive monitoring or procedural intervention. As a whole, acute limb ischemia in the pediatric population is an infrequent diagnosis but is potentially devastating when it occurs.
