Popliteal injuries are well known to be serious with a high rate of mortality due to damage caused to popliteal vessels. Pseudoaneurysm formation and arteriovenous fistulas are well-known complications of arterial injury, but are rarely concomitant. Diagnosis is usually done by computed tomography (CT) angiography. Treatment strategies consist of surgery or endovascular management. We report the surgical treatment of two cases of popliteal arteriovenous fistula associated with pseudoaneurysm complicating stab wounds...

Two main causes of arterial thrombosis are known: fi rst - atherosclerosis, extensively studied, and the second - atrial fi brillation. The lack of any risk factors and the occurrence at young age of a thrombotic event requires us to investigate possible other conditions, including inherited thrombophilia that is represented by a series of genetic disorders that increase the risk of thromboembolic disease. The role of thrombophilia in the occurrence of arterial thrombosis is inconsequential; this disorder is characterized by the tendency of developing venous thrombosis...

PURPOSE: During tibial tubercle transfer, popliteal vessels are at risk from drills and screws. The risk is around 0.11%, as described in the literature. We reviewed knee injected CT scan for analysis of the location of arteries, identified landmarks allowing minimizing risks, and defined a safe zone. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Distances between the posterior cortex and arteries were measured on CT scans from 30 adults (60 knees) at three levels (proximal part of the tibial tuberosity, 20 mm and 40 mm distally)...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a recognised cause of lower limb peripheral arterial disease in young adults. We describe the cases of two otherwise healthy brothers who presented with the condition 5 years apart. The first brother, who is also the first author of this case report, presented aged 19 with worsening, right-sided, exercise-induced lower leg pain and transient foot pallor. Imaging confirmed PAES and irreversible localised arterial damage. Surgery was performed to release the entrapment and resect the section of diseased artery...

BACKGROUND: The association between venous and arterial thrombotic disorders is still unclear. We assessed the association between residual vein thrombosis (RVT) and subclinical atherosclerosis in a cohort of patients with unprovoked (or associated with weak risk factors) proximal deep-vein thrombosis (DVT). METHODS: In a multicenter cross-sectional study, consecutive patients over 40years free from atherosclerotic disorders received the ultrasound assessment of the leg vein system and that of carotid arteries approximately three months after an episode of proximal DVT...

Injuries due to dog bites are a common occurrence and are mostly trivial. Severe dog bite injuries requiring hospitalization and complex reconstructive procedures are more common in children. We present the case of a five year old child with popliteal artery thrombosis and compound Posterior Cruciate ligament injury due to a dog bite. The child was managed by immediate thrombectomy, meticulous debridement and knee spanning external fixation followed by Skin Grafting. At one year post surgery range of motion was 10-110°, with no distal neurovascular deficit and no sign of instability...

In the clinic 60 patients were examined, in whom reconstructive operations on the main arteries were performed for obliterating atherosclerosis (OA) of the lower extremities vessels. Efficacy of impact of Plestazol (in a 200 mg/day dose) on neointima hyperpla- sia was studied. Clopidogrel (75 mg/day) was administered to patients of comparative group. Effective criteria for estimation of the migration-proliferation disorders state in endothelial dysfunction are concentration of the intercellular adhesion molecules (ICAM) and the basic factor of the fibroblasts growth (FGFb); morphological disorders in hyperplastic reactions of neointima - determination of thickness of "intima-media" complex in accordance to the ultrasound duplex scanning data...

BACKGROUND: Peripheral arterial disease poses a significant burden in the hemodialysis (HD)-dependent population. Race is a known modifier of outcomes after surgical treatment of peripheral arterial disease. A comprehensive evaluation of the effect of race on infrainguinal bypass surgery (IBS) outcomes in HD patients is lacking. In this study, we evaluated the effects of race on long-term IBS outcomes in a large, nationally representative cohort of HD patients. METHODS: We studied all HD patients who underwent IBS between January 2007 and December 2011 in the United States Renal Disease System-Medicare matched database...

Thrombosis is a frequent cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with nephrotic syndrome (NS). Though venous thromboses are common in NS, arterial thromboses are relatively rare. Commonly involved arteries include coronary, iliac, femoral, renal, cerebral, pulmonary, mesenteric, and axillary arteries, and the aorta. Arterial thromboses are associated with poor prognosis; treatment options are limited and patients may not always be amenable to treatment. We present the case of a 39-year-old female with NS who presented with thigh pain and was found to have sub-acute popliteal artery thrombosis...

REVIEW
Jos C van den Berg
The endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic disease of the infra-inguinal arteries has changed significantly over the last decades. In an attempt to overcome the high restenosis rates that characterize plain balloon angioplasty and stenting using bare mate stents drug-eluting balloon technology has been applied in the treatment of lesions of the superficial femoral and popliteal artery. This paper will give an overview of the rationale and the technology of drug-eluting balloons and will review currently available data from registries and randomized controlled trials...
