Guidelines for the management of popliteal artery trauma emanate mainly from military experience. This study was undertaken to describe the management of popliteal injuries in a civilian vascular surgical unit with a large trauma workload. 
Popliteal artery injury: Royal Perth experience and literature review
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to review the authors’ experience with this condition and discuss the best approach to investigation and management. Expand
Vascular Injuries in the Legs
TLDR
Before exploring a wound in a patient with a history of substantial bleeding, obtain proximal control. Expand
Overview of vascular injuries in Yemen: Experience from a single tertiary referral hospital
TLDR
The present study aimed to describe the experience in the management of vascular injuries in civilian practice in Yemen, where gunshot injuries seen frequently where civilian violence is common. Expand
Popliteal artery trauma. A critical appraisal of an uncommon injury.
TLDR
The main findings were that blunt trauma was predominant and most patients presented with severe signs of ischaemia, and long delays occurred between injury and treatment, mostly due to the tyranny of distance. Expand
Outcome after ligation of major veins for trauma.
TLDR
The primary goals are to describe the consequences of ligation and to determine when repair/ reconstruction of a major venous injury is preferred and to identify patients with combined arterial and venous injuries. Expand
Medial approach for popliteal artery injuries.
TLDR
The medial approach for repair of the popliteal artery is effective, applicable, and more advantageous to the management of multi-injures. Expand
Management of distal femoral and popliteal arterial injuries: an update.
TLDR
The study shows that arterial reconstruction for acute traumatic lower-limb injuries results in a good limb-salvage rate, and advocates prompt vascular repair before orthopedic intervention for combined vascular and skeletal injuries of the lower extremity, without using intravascular shunting. Expand
Management of traumatic popliteal vascular injuries in a level I trauma center: A 6-year experience.
TLDR
Early restoration of blood perfusion, frequent use of interposition grafts with autogenous saphenous vein, and liberal use of fasciotomies play important role to achieve acceptable outcomes in traumatic popliteal vascular injuries. Expand
Civilian popliteal artery injuries.
TLDR
The most significant factors associated with the high amputation rate of 37.5% were an ischaemic time longer than 7 hours, and the presence of a compartment syndrome. Expand
Management of popliteal artery injuries Popliteal arter yaralanmalarinin tedavisi
TLDR
Although prompt arterial repair appears to be a critical factor that improves the extremity salvage rate, even in popliteal arterial injury with complete motor deficit without mottling, vascular repair should be considered regardless of ischemic time. Expand

An institutional experience with 100 consecutive blunt popliteal artery injuries over a 20-year period was reviewed. The overall amputation rate was 15%; however, during the past 7 years this hasExpand
A reassessment of the role of arteriography in penetrating proximity extremity trauma: a prospective study.
TLDR
Penetrating proximity extremity trauma was prospectively studied to clarify the role of routine arteriographic evaluation (AG) and patients underwent AG and were randomized to either immediate or delayed timing. Expand

TLDR
The use of interposition saphenous vein graft in the arterial reconstruction, repair of concomitant popliteal vein injuries, initial bone fixation of fractures with external fixators, and the performance of intraoperative arteriography were all important steps taken to ensure a 100% limb salvage.

TLDR
An aggressive, multidisciplinary approach is required to achieve a functional extremity when popliteal vascular trauma occurs and the importance of complete fasciotomy for compartment hypertension, early reconstructive management of soft-tissue injuries, and expeditious arterial repair, frequently without preoperative roentgenographic suite arteriography, is emphasized.

Popliteal artery injuries in Vietnam.
TLDR
Although generally good results have been obtained in managing more than 2,000 acute vascular injuries in Vietnam, repair of popliteal arteries remains a problem, and Associated injuries to bone, nerves, soft tissue, and veins are frequent and have a significant effect on the outcome in extremities withpopliteal artery injuries.

Results of venous reconstruction after civilian vascular trauma.
TLDR
The data indicate that repair of venous injuries can be performed without morbidity and that minor veins can be ligated without adverse sequelae and efforts to restore flow to these injured vessels appear appropriate unless contraindicated by life-threatening injury. Expand
Lower limb trauma with injury to the popliteal vessels.
TLDR
Although the magnitude of the first variable is determined by initial trauma and cannot be altered, a constant awareness of possible arterial injury in lower limb trauma, and adherence to a plan of management according to the ischemic state of the leg should help avoid the additional deleterious effects of prolonged ischemia. Expand
A critical reappraisal of indications for fasciotomy after extremity vascular trauma.
TLDR
The presence of a combined vascular injury or the need for venous ligation does not necessitate routine fasciotomy, and theneed for fAsciotomy may be maximal for injuries to popliteal vessels. Expand
