Popliteal vein thrombosis secondary to popliteal artery aneurysm.

Abstract

Two patients with popliteal vein thrombosis secondary to popliteal artery aneurysm are described. The association of venous abnormalities in 623 reported cases of popliteal artery aneurysm is reviewed. The high morbidity from popliteal vein thrombosis would seem to justify preoperative leg venography in patients with popliteal artery aneurysm.
