A rare para-anastomotic femoral artery aneurysm in a patient with history of femoro-popliteal bypass graft occlusion.

Aldemir M, Adali F, Akci Ö, Eerkoç S, Darçin OT - Int J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: They are mostly seen after abdominal aortic procedures and also are mostly encountered as pseudoaneurysms.We discuss the surgical management and possible causation of this extremely rare condition Para-anastomotic aneurysms can have some life-threatening consequences, such as erosion of adjacent tissues, distal embolization from mural thrombus and rupture of the aneurysmal sac.Endovascular treatment using stent grafts is highly effective, but it has some handicaps such as occlusion of major arterial orifices.

fig0005: Giant pulsating mass in the left groin.

Mentions: A 57-year-old male was referred to our vascular surgery clinic complaining of a large painful mass in the left groin for six months. He stated that, five years previously he had a prosthetic femoro-popliteal bypass graft because of claudication. He denied any recent trauma to the groin. He was a non-smoker. He was not claudicating when he presented to our clinic. Physical examination confirmed a large, hard, pulsatile swelling in his left groin (Fig. 1) measuring 8 cm in maximal diameter, and a scar down his left thigh. There were no ischemic changes in his legs. Normal peripheral pulses were present in all four limbs. He had moderate cardiac insufficiency (ejection fraction 40%), arterial hypertension and type II diabetes mellitus.
