Abstract

A 56-year old gentleman presented to our orthopaedic foot and ankle clinic, with unusual symptoms in his left foot. He described a tight sensation over his toes, “like sandpaper under his skin”. The pain had started post operatively following a bilateral aorto-femoral bypass. He was subsequently investigated and found to have an ischemic lesion Identified in his common peroneal and posterior tibial nerve with associated muscle atrophy on EMG. This represents a previously unreported complication of aorto-femoral bypass surgery.
