    Case Report
    Bruno Pavei*
    Objectives: To describe a rare case of significant vascular injury that occurred following the harvest of hamstring tendon graft for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, with the need of repair.
    Case report: A 30-year-old male soccer player presented with significant swelling and acute pain two hours after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Clinical examination and MRI scan showed bleeding, and a large hematoma in the middle of the left thigh. Hemorrhagic contention was only possible after a secondary repair, where a vessel of the sartorius muscle was bleeding profusely 12 hours after the primary surgery.
    Discussion: The presence of a large number of vessels on the medial side of the knee associated with blind flexor tendons graft hamstring is cause of vascular injury during removal of the hamstring graft.
    Conclusion: Although uncommon, graft hamstring of flexor tendons can have devastating consequences if some hemostasis procedures are not correctly applied.
