Persistent sciatic artery (PSA) is a rare vascular anomaly present in 0.025% to 0.05% of the population. They are particularly prone to aneurysmal degeneration, potentially leading to distal ischemia, sciatic neuropathy, or rarely rupture. Here, we describe a case of a ruptured PSA aneurysm managed by endovascular embolization. A 70-year-old man initially presented with acute left lower extremity ischemia. He was found to have a popliteal embolus originating from a complete persistent sciatic… CONTINUE READING
