Bottom Line: The etiology of CAD is unclear; however, the direct communication between a cyst and a joint is presumed to be a cause.Although less invasive treatment modalities, including percutaneous cyst aspiration and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, have been the subject of recent reports, these treatments have had a higher recurrence rate.Therefore, all of the CAPDA cases in the present series were treated surgically, which lead to good outcomes.

ABSTRACT
Cystic adventitial disease (CAD) is a rare cause of intermittent claudication and nonatherosclerotic conditions in middle-aged men without cardiovascular risk factors. The etiology of CAD is unclear; however, the direct communication between a cyst and a joint is presumed to be a cause. We herein report a case series of CAD of the popliteal artery (CADPA), in which patients were treated with surgical resection and vascular reconstruction. Although less invasive treatment modalities, including percutaneous cyst aspiration and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, have been the subject of recent reports, these treatments have had a higher recurrence rate. Therefore, all of the CAPDA cases in the present series were treated surgically, which lead to good outcomes.

Mentions: A 36-year-old male presented with an approximately one month history of intermittent claudication in his left calf with a symptom-free walk interval of 300 meters without rest pain. On physical examination, his left popliteal and pedal pulses were diminished, and his left ABI was 0.66. CT angiography showed an occlusion of the left popliteal artery (Figure 2(a)), compressed by a low density cystic mass (Figure 2(b)). Under general anesthesia, he was positioned prone to harvest the left great saphenous vein below the knee and expose the affected popliteal artery through a posterior approach. The occluded popliteal artery, with a compressing cystic lesion, was resected and the patient was interposed with great saphenous vein graft. The patient's postoperative course was uneventful without any evidence of lower limb ischemia. His postoperative ankle brachial pressure increased to 1.2.
