Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome.
J Coll Physicians Surg Pak 2011; 21(6):376-8JC

Abstract

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is an uncommon cause of intermittent claudication in young athletic persons. A 32 years old soldier presented with 14 months history of intermittent claudication. On the basis of history, physical examination and angiographic findings a diagnosis of popliteal artery entrapment was made. Exploration revealed a fibrous band tightly compressing popliteal artery and irreversibly damaged popliteal artery. Short saphenous vein graft was used to bypass the occluded segment of popliteal artery. This led to complete resolution of symptoms and continuation of active service.
