In brief: Must be ruled out

Vascular conditions must be ruled out as part of the injury evaluation and treatment.
Vascular conditions after an injury are not uncommon; they often are missed because they're not suspected and don't have symptoms right away. A missed vascular condition after injury can be devastating. If you are injured, ask your doctor to evaluate you for a possible vascular condition.
