N Settembre, Z Bouziane, M A Bartoli, V Nabokov, M Venermo, P Feugier, S Malikov
OBJECTIVE: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is an uncommon anatomical anomaly, frequently described in adults. The most common symptom is claudication. Acute limb ischaemia (ALI) in children is rare, but it may evolve and lead to limb loss or lifelong complications. Clinical and surgical experience of PAES in children is reported. Data from the literature are analysed in order to assess the severity of this disease and to identify the factors characterising the diagnosis and the outcome of treatment in paediatric patients...

BACKGROUND: Popliteal fossa, also known as the popliteal space, is located behind the knee joint. This region can develop many clinical complications in the vascular, nervous, lymphatics, adipose, as well as swelling and masses. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this review article is to give a detailed understanding of the popliteal fossa and the clinical pathology that may present itself. METHODS: MEDLINE® searches were conducted of literature published since 1950s for "popliteal fossa," "diseases," "anatomy," "arterial," "venous," "nerves," "entrapment syndrome," "aneurysms," "cysts," "lymphatics," "solid masses," "tumors," "inflammatory lesions," and "swellings...

Uncommon diseases of the popliteal artery include cystic adventitial disease, popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) and popliteal artery aneurysm (PAA). Because all of these conditions may present with pain or intermittent claudication, imaging is crucial for differentiating them and directing management. Delayed diagnosis can lead to major complications, including acute limb ischemia. Our aim is to provide an illustrative overview of these conditions in order to make radiologists aware of them and avoid misdiagnosis for timely appropriate management...

Popliteal entrapment syndrome caused by isolated popliteus muscle enlargement is very rare, although its occurrence has been reported after discrete trauma. However, popliteal artery stenosis with combined peroneal and proximal tibial neuropathy caused by popliteus muscle enlargement without preceding trauma has not been reported. A 57-year-old man presented with a tingling sensation and pain in his left calf. He had no previous history of an injury. The symptoms were similar to those of lumbosacral radiculopathy...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a rare condition, and its long-term outcome after surgical treatment is scarcely reported. We report the case of an aneurysmal degeneration of a venous bypass performed to treat PAES, which ultimately led to rupture. Hybrid treatment combining embolization and surgery resulted in favorable outcome. This case emphasizes the need for long-term follow-up after surgical treatment of PAES.

We present the case of a 28-year-old man with a growing mass in his right popliteal fossa causing pain on exertion. The differential diagnosis included Baker's cyst, entrapment syndrome of the popliteal artery, as well as a benign or malignant neoplasm. An ultrasound was non-specific. Follow-up MRI of the knee demonstrated cystic adventitial disease (CAD). With only about 500 cases reported in the literature since its discovery in 1947, CAD is a rare entity. The disease is characterised by mucinous or gelatinous cysts in the arterial or venous adventitia...

Exertional leg pain is a common condition seen in runners and the general population. Given the broad differential diagnosis of this complaint, this article focuses on the incidence, anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and management of common causes that include medial tibial stress syndrome, tibial bone stress injury, chronic exertional compartment syndrome, arterial endofibrosis, popliteal artery entrapment syndrome, and entrapment of the common peroneal, superficial peroneal, and saphenous nerves...

Dealing with vascular compression syndromes is one of the most challenging tasks in Vascular Medicine practice. This heterogeneous group of disorders is characterised by external compression of primarily healthy arteries and/or veins as well as accompanying nerval structures, carrying the risk of subsequent structural vessel wall and nerve damage. Vascular compression syndromes may severely impair health-related quality of life in affected individuals who are typically young and otherwise healthy. The diagnostic approach has not been standardised for any of the vascular compression syndromes...

PURPOSE: We report on cases of anatomical popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) caused by an aberrant plantaris muscle and highlight the involvement of this muscle in PAES. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seven symptomatic PAES legs in six patients treated at The Division of Vascular Surgery, Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea, between 1995 and 2011 were included in this study. We retrospectively analyzed patient records, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or computed tomography (CT) scans of the knee joint, Doppler pressure studies, CT angiographies, and conventional femoral arteriographies...

A new method of diagnosing and defining functional popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is described. By combining ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging techniques with dynamic plantarflexion of the ankle against resistance, functional entrapment can be demonstrated and the location of the arterial occlusion identified. This combination of imaging modalities will also define muscular anatomy for guiding intervention such as surgery or Botox injection.

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) may be implicated as a cause of lower leg pain in active individuals. Though a relatively rare syndrome, it is likely underdiagnosed. History often includes exertional lower leg pain, cramping, and/or paresthesias rather quickly relieved by rest, though examination may be benign. When suspected, imaging is recommended to assess anatomic variations versus functional entrapment of the artery in the calf. Because there are a number of diagnostic modalities available, it seems prudent to begin with noninvasive testing, such as ultrasound with Doppler and provocative maneuvers...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a rare and underdiagnosed cause of claudication in young adult. The typical clinical feature is calf claudication; the following case reports describe 2 rare clinical aspects, acute limb ischemia and pulsatile mass revealing a bilateral anatomic entrapment. These cases suggest that an early diagnosis is mandatory to avoid a dramatic clinical outcome and to limit the surgical treatment to a myotomy.

Chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) is a relatively rare condition that affects young adult athletes and often causes them to present to the emergency department. If left untreated, those who continue to compete at high levels may experience debilitating leg pain. Physicians may have difficulty differentiating CECS from other syndromes of the lower leg such as medial tibial stress syndrome, stress fractures, and popliteal artery entrapment. The gold standard for diagnosing CECS is intramuscular compartment pressure monitoring before and/or after 10 minutes of exercise...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is an uncommon condition resulting from an abnormal anatomic relationship between the popliteal artery and the surrounding musculature. The compression created by this variance in anatomy can lead to ischemia and vascular claudication. The diagnosis of PAES requires a thorough patient history and physical exam, a high index of suspicion, and dedicated imaging techniques. Several treatment options are available, including surgical intervention, thrombolysis, or a combination of these depending on the clinical indication...

Atherosclerotic peripheral artery disease is the most common cause of intermittent claudication. Nonatherosclerotic peripheral artery disease is a heterogeneous collection of diseases affecting the extracoronary arteries which is not due to atherosclerosis. These diseases include, but are not limited to, popliteal artery entrapment syndrome, cystic adventitial disease, external iliac endofibrosis, and thromboangiitis obliterans. Due to its relatively low prevalence, nonatherosclerotic peripheral artery disease may be misdiagnosed leading to the mismanagement of potentially treatable conditions...

BACKGROUND: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is an increasingly encountered disorder that typically presents as claudication in young and active individuals. However, despite the increased recognition, accurate preoperative diagnosis can be difficult. The objective of this study was to describe the surgical assessment and outcomes of patients treated for PAES. METHODS: Retrospective case series of all patients managed surgically for a diagnosis of PAES at the San Antonio Military Medical Center from 2005 to 2013...

Iliac endofibrosis or iliac kinking and popliteal artery entrapment syndrome are uncommon causes of arterial insufficiency and intermittent claudication in young physically active adults. Diagnostics can be difficult, as the symptoms often are confused with sport injuries and musculoskeletal disorders. Investigation of these patients relies on accurate clinical history and examination as well as both static and dynamic imaging. Early diagnosis and vascular intervention is essential for continued exercise and to prevent thromboembolic complications and, in worst case, limb loss...
