Cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery.Diagn Interv Radiol. 2011 Jun; 17(2):166-8.DI
Cystic adventitial disease is a rare condition that usually affects the popliteal artery, and is a rare cause of non-atherosclerotic stenosis. It is most commonly found in young or middle-aged men with intermittent claudication. Herein we present a histologically proven case of cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery in a 53-year-old man. We describe the imaging findings on gray-scale, Doppler and triplex ultrasonography, computed tomography with 3D reconstruction and digital subtraction angiography.
