Degenerative femoral artery aneurysms are uncommon and often associated with aneurysm in other distributions. We report a case of a 68-year-old man with multianeurysmal disease involving the aorta, iliac, femoral, and popliteal arteries managed interdisciplinary by stent-graft placement and open surgical repair. Genetic testing revealed a variant in the FBN2 gene encoding fibrillin-2, an important component of microfibrils. We detail arterial reconstruction of the femoral artery and discuss incidence, diagnosis, and therapy of femoral artery aneurysms...

This report describes 7 cases of popliteal venous aneurysm, including 2 cases with tachypnea, 3 cases discovered during investigation for chronic venous disease, and 2 cases presenting with pain and mass in the popliteal fossa. Successful treatment was achieved by surgery or conservative treatment. Based on the treatments for popliteal venous aneurysm, surgical repair is primarily used in symptomatic patients; however, conservative treatment or a regular clinical and duplex ultrasound follow-up is recommended for asymptomatic patients...

INTRODUCTION: Popliteal artery entrapment is an uncommon syndrome, caused by extrinsic compression of the popliteal artery by muscular or tendinous structures. It occurs mainly in young individuals, with no atherosclerostic risk factors, and a mean age of presentation of 20 to 40 years, and has higher prevalence in males (83% of patients). Clinical presentation depends on the degree of arterial lesion, the most common being intermittent claudication, with critical ischemia being frequent...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to evaluate the outcome of catheter directed thrombolysis (CDT) in acute lower limb ischaemia depending on the underlying etiology. METHODS: Retrospective single center analysis of electronic clinical data on patients with acute lower limb ischaemia treated with CDT. Between January 2011 and September 2017, 128 procedures in 106 patients were included. The etiology of ischaemia was native artery thrombosis in 39 procedures (30,5%), PTFE graft thrombosis in 56 (43,8%), intra-stent thrombosis in 11 (8,6%), emboly in 9 (7%), popliteal aneurysm thrombosis in 9 (7%), vein graft thrombosis in 2 (1,6%) and popliteal artery entrapment in 2 (1,6%)...

We describe a case of a 44 year-old man with a subcutaneous swelling in the left popliteal fossa. The patient complained pain posteriorly to the left knee since several months and presented with a saccular aneurysm of the left popliteal vein (PVA) with reflux clearly evidenced at duplex ultrasound scan (DUS), but in absence of thrombus inside and without clinical signs of embolism. The patient was treated surgically by aneurysmectomy with lateral venorrhaphy according to Aldridge technique and a duplex ultrasound scan after six months revealed a complete patency of the left popliteal vein...

Background The endovascular approach became an alternative to open surgical treatment of popliteal artery aneurysm over the last few years. Heparin-bonded stent-grafts have been employed for endovascular popliteal artery aneurysm repair, showing good and stable results. Only few reports about the use of multilayer flow modulator are available in literature, providing small patient series and short follow-up. The aim of this study is to report the outcomes of patients with popliteal artery aneurysm treated with the multilayer flow modulator in three Italian centres...

OBJECTIVE: Venous aneurysms are uncommon vascular abnormalities that may be identified anywhere in the body. Historically, they were often misdiagnosed as soft tissue lesions, but with the advent of readily available noninvasive imaging (such as duplex ultrasound), they can now be easily identified. Our aim was to review the presentation of venous aneurysms, available imaging modalities for defining them, and management. METHODS: The English-language literature before March 2017 was reviewed, and only reports of primary venous aneurysms of the deep veins were included...

OBJECTIVE: A suitable ipsilateral great saphenous vein (GSV) autograft is widely considered the best material for arterial reconstruction of a popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA). There are, however, cases in which such a GSV is absent, diseased, or of too small diameter for this use. Alternatives to GSV are synthetic conduits, but with a reduced long-term patency, in particular for infragenicular bypass; other venous autografts of marginal use; and stent grafts still in the first stages of their evaluation...

Endovascular salvage of failed surgical bypasses has been scantly reported for treatment of infrainguinal occlusive disease. Although catheter-directed thrombolysis and/or mechanical thromboembolectomy have been the mainstay of endovascular salvage of previous bypass grafts, native vessel recanalization remains seldom attempted. Herein, we present a unique approach to native vessel recanalization of a chronically thrombosed popliteal artery aneurysm for nonhealing distal ulceration.

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to report midterm outcomes of open repair (OR) or endovascular repair (ER) of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) and assess if outcomes of patients have changed in the endovascular era. METHODS: This monocentric and retrospective study included all consecutive patients treated for PAA between January 2004 and December 2016. Before 2010, all patients underwent OR, but ER was available since 2010, and the choice between OR or ER was made on the basis of clinical presentation and preoperative morphological assessment...

A 12-year-old boy presenting with chest pain and dyspnea was found to have bilateral pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) secondary to left popliteal venous aneurysm (PVA) with thrombus. He improved with thrombolytics, developed recurrent PTE, then underwent surgical repair of his PVA. The pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of PVA are discussed.

BACKGROUND: Aneurysms of the deep veins of the lower limbs are rare and often asymptomatic. Although natural history is unclear, these aneurysms have been associated with deep venous thrombosis and fatal pulmonary embolism events. To our knowledge, this case represents the fifth patient with isolated aneurysm of a calf vein described in the literature and the second one affecting the fibular vein. METHODS: We report the case of a 20-year-old white man with an aneurysm of the fibular vein that we believe is the second case in the literature RESULTS: After evaluation and diagnosis, the aneurysm was resected with full recovery of the patient...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome typically causes calf claudication in young active adults. Acute limb ischemia from popliteal artery thrombosis, embolization, or aneurysmal degeneration is less common. Chronic compression, histologic changes, and predisposing factors, such as vigorous exercise or hypercoagulability, play a role in these cases. We present the case of a 32-year-old pregnant woman with acute limb ischemia found to have popliteal artery thrombosis as a result of popliteal artery entrapment syndrome...

We present a novel surgical technique for lower limb revascularization after resection of an aneurysm of the persistent sciatic artery that had led to recurrent peripheral embolization and severe ischemia. The superficial femoral artery in this patient was hypoplastic, and the sciatic artery continued into the popliteal artery as the source of blood supply to the lower leg. For revascularization, we used the distally pedicled healthy two-thirds of the persistent sciatic artery, transposed it from its posterior position to a nearly anatomic anteromedial position, and anastomosed it to the proximal superficial femoral artery...

Objectives: Generally, popliteal artery aneurysms have been addressed surgically by a medial, posterior, or lateral approach. We have designed a new posterior approach that exposes the superficial femoral artery and entire popliteal artery without dividing any muscles in a just prone position. Methods and results: A 72-year old man with huge popliteal aneurysm extended to superficial femoral artery was admitted to our hospital. Surgery was performed due to a high risk of rupture...

BACKGROUND Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) results from an anomalous relationship between the popliteal artery and the myofascial structures of the popliteal fossa. The most common presenting symptoms include intermittent pain in the feet and calves on exercise, resulting in lameness. PAES can lead to popliteal artery thrombosis, stenosis, distal arterial thromboembolism, or arterial aneurysm. The treatment of PAES includes surgical exploration with fasciotomy, myotomy, or sectioning of fibrous band formation, to release the popliteal artery...
