Abstract

Popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) are the most common peripheral aneurysms. Repair is recommended owing to risk of thromboembolic complications. Endovascular technology has led to a significant increase in available management options for patients with PAA. Open repair remains the gold standard; however, endovascular approach including stent-graft repair and preoperative thrombolysis are valuable adjuncts in management of patients with PAA.
