Atherosclerotic Popliteal Aneurysm in a Man Thirty-five Years Old
Report of a Case
This case of atherosclerotic aneurysm of the popliteal artery is of interest because the patient was a man 35 years old and because the condition was discovered only because palpation of the peripheral arteries was included as a part of routine examination. Only after the aneurysm had been found was a history of intermittent claudication elicited. The indications for the surgical treatment of popliteal aneurysms are discussed.
