Endovascular treatment of cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery.Ann Vasc Surg. 2013 Nov; 27(8):1185.e1-3.AV
Cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery is an uncommon cause of intermittent claudication in young patients. Several treatment options are available, oriented to either drainage of the cyst and/or arterial reconstruction. Endovascular techniques have been used in exceptional cases to treat this condition, mostly balloon angioplasty and only 2 cases of stenting, with mixed to poor results. We report the case of a 36-year-old female patient with claudication who was treated with primary stenting with long-term symptomatic relief and arterial patency.
