A case of pseudoaneurysm of the radial artery after fixation of a distal radius using the AO/ASIF volar distal radius plate system is presented. This unusual complication resulted from inadequate fracture stabilization and plate preparation. Technical tips on plate shortening and preparation of the cut ends are emphasized.
