  • CONCLUSIONS: Continuous popliteal artery compression leads to its progressive fibrosis, which may cause thrombosis or post-stenotic aneurysmal dilation. Treatment should be performed as soon as possible as to avoid this course and the eventual necessity of interposition or bypass grafting. Futhermore, late intervention worsens the interposition/ bypass grafting prognosis5. In this sense, the possibility of this diagnosis should be considered in a young patient presenting with intermittent claudication. Diagnostic tests are often decisive for differential diagnosis and to establish the disease subtype and intervention strategy. In most patients, a culprit muscular or tendinous anomaly is detected before surgery, however, in some individuals, especially physically active ones, compression results from muscular hypertrophy.
