Radial artery injury from a catfish sting.

Academic Article

Six months after surgical removal of the cartilaginous spine and primary repair of the vessel wall, the patient had an uneventful follow-up with minimal symptoms of cold intolerance and maintained arterial patency as documented by Allen's test and ultrasound.
