Endovascular salvage of failed surgical bypasses has been scantly reported for treatment of infrainguinal occlusive disease. While 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 non-healing distal ulceration.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to report mid-term outcomes of open repair (OR) or endovascular repair (ER) of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAA) 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. CASE PRESENTATION: 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...

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...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the natural progression of popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) and clinical variables associated with their accelerated growth. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 224 patients with encounters between January 2008 and May 2016 and with at least one PAA was conducted. From this group, 65 asymptomatic patients had either unilateral (n = 43) or bilateral (n = 22) PAAs that were observed for at least 1 year of medical management before intervention...

OBJECTIVE: Use of autologous veins as peripheral bypass graft may become critical in the presence of significant varicose degeneration of the harvested vein. External support of such dilated veins with standard polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) prostheses was recommended as an option to use these veins for peripheral bypass. A single-center experience with this technique regarding long-term graft function, secondary reinterventions, and potential graft degeneration is presented. METHODS: Between January 1995 and January 2006, there were 54 patients with varicose veins who underwent 57 consecutive infrainguinal vein bypass operations with PTFE reinforcement in 57 limbs...

An aneurysm is defined as a "sac communicating with the lumen of an artery" and the treatment of the various types of this disease has intrigued surgeons through the ages. Aneurysms of the popliteal artery today are fairly uncommon. However, in the 18th century they were quite frequently encountered, many of them in coach drivers. We can only surmise that this was the result of repetitive trauma to the artery, already the seat of arteriosclerosis, against the rim at the top of the long leather riding boot which was worn at that time...

We report a rare case of cystic adventitial disease of popliteal artery with venous aneurysm of popliteal vein. A 46-year-old woman had sudden-onset intermittent claudication and coldness in her right leg. The right-sided ankle-brachial pressure index (ABI) was 1.01, but peripheral arterial pulsation was decreased at knee venting position. Computed tomography revealed simple cystic lesion of the popliteal artery and stenosis of the arterial lumen in this lesion. The patient was treated by complete resection of the cystic adventitial layer of popliteal artery...

BACKGROUND: Open repair (OR) for popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA) has recently been challenged by endovascular repair (ER) as the primary choice of treatment. The aim of the present study was to evaluate time trends in treatment modality and compare outcomes between OR and ER among electively operated patients after start of screening in 2010 for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a disease highly associated with PAA. METHODS: Between January 1, 2009, and April 30, 2017, 102 procedures and 36 acute and 66 elective repairs for PAA were identified...

OBJECTIVES: Ninety-five per cent of those operated on for popliteal artery aneurysm (PA) are men. Thus, PAs in women are difficult to investigate. The aim was to study the disease in women. METHODS: Women treated for PA in 1987-2012, prospectively registered in the Swedish vascular registry, Swedvasc, supplemented by case records, were compared with the larger male cohort. Survival was determined through cross linkage with the National Population Registry. RESULTS: 1509 patients (men and women), 1872 legs, were identified; of these 74 patients (4...

OBJECTIVE: Conflicting data exist on outcomes of open vein harvest (OVH) and endoscopic vein harvest (EVH) for infrainguinal bypass. The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes between OVH and EVH in femoral to popliteal artery bypasses. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all patients undergoing common femoral to popliteal artery bypass with great saphenous vein between January 1997 and June 2014. Bypasses using arm or composite vein were excluded, as were those performed for popliteal artery aneurysms or trauma...
