ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome

History: Gradually increasing claudication symptoms in left leg with running.

Findings: Image 1 demonstrates occlusion of the majority of the left popliteal artery with medial deviation of the most proximal portion which does contain contrast. Image 2 demonstrates a patent but also medially deviated right popliteal artery (passive plantar flexion) Image 3 demonstrates, with the patient now in active plantar flexion, extrinsic compression and continued medial deviation of right popliteal artery

Ddx: atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease popliteal artery entrapment syndrome thrombosis of a popliteal artery aneurysm Thrombosis of the left popliteal artery due to an intrinsic or aquired abnormality of coagulation. Cardiac thromboembolic phenomenon. extrinsic compression by a soft tissue mass

Dxhow: Image characteristics of bilateral medially deviated popliteal arteries, with extrinsic compression which is worse with active plantar flexion on the right side as well as patient age and symptom presentation of claudication with running, taken together are essentially pathognomonic of popliteal entrapment syndrome

Exam: Diminished dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial pulses of at left ankle.

No MeSH data available.
