We report 15 examples of popliteal artery entrapment syndrome observed in 11 patients. The anatomical causes were as follows: in one case, the popliteal artery presented an aberrant course medially to the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle. In 5 cases, there was a small fibrous band linking the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle to the lateral condyle and crossing behind the popliteal artery; in 5 cases this anomaly was also found in association with an abnormally high and/or internal… CONTINUE READING
