A 19-year-old male patient with isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) rupture underwent arthroscopic reconstruction using reinforced synthetic ligament (LARS system). Three weeks postoperatively, he presented with active bleeding from the medial side of his knee, near the proximal interference screw. An angiogram revealed extravasation from the medial superior genicular artery which was successfully embolized. One week later, he returned with active bleeding from the same area, located just under the initial coiling; a second embolization during superselective angiography was successful.
Although rare, minor vascular injuries are a risk inherent to PCL surgery.
