ABSTRACT
Subclavian artery occlusion after blunt trauma is an extremely rare injury. This has been attributed to its wellprotected location deep in the scalene triangle, bounded by the first rib and clavicle. A case of post-traumatic occlusion of the subclavian artery with clavicle fracture was reported by Sodhi et al in 2006 and in Korea was reported by Han et al in 2001. We believe that is the first report of post-traumatic occlusion of the subclavian artery without clavicle and first rib fracture in Korea.
Key words: Subclavian Artery, Blunt Injuries, Wounds, Nonpenetrating
