And this is the normal side with flow. When we asked the patient he admitted that he had sustained a trauma to the wrist some time ago. We concluded that perhaps the changes were post traumatic. We decided to do an MRI

MRI We concluded that the lesion was probabbly postraumatic with edema and some hemmorhage and waited a number of months and repeated the examination

Conclusion

The abnormalities in the arterial wall of the radial atery are not caused by adventitial cysts but by post-traumatic changes.
