Abstract
Although rare, popliteal artery aneurysms are the most common peripheral aneurysms and are frequently associated with abdominal aorta aneurysms. They are often bilateral. One third of patients are asymptomatic at diagnosis, with an insidious evolution. Symptomatic patients may present with symptoms of either acute ischemia or chronic ischemia, or rarely compression or rupture. Surgical exclusion of aneurysm followed by venous bypass remains the treatment of choice. Endovascular treatment is an attractive alternative currently reserved for patients at high risk, with good anatomical criteria. Elective treatment before symptoms onset is preferable given the best results in terms of patency and complications. A conservative approach is allowed for small aneurysms without major embolic risk provided careful monitoring by ultrasound.
