male, 19 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome
     

    MRI of the right popliteal fossa on the axial plane shows an accessory muscle slip of the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle, localised between the popliteal artery and vein.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome;

    MR image obtained at the same level of as Fig. 1a shows the difference between both popliteal fossae.

  • Figure 2
    Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome
     

    AP angiogram demonstrates medial deviation in the proximal right popliteal artery and post-stenotic aneurysmatic dilatation in the mid popliteal artery.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome;

    DSA image shows partial thrombus formation in the aneurysmatic segment and in the tibioperoneal trunk. Also anterior tibial artery occlusion due to distal embolisation is seen.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome;

    Post-operative DSA image demonstrates arterial reconstructions that were made using an autogenous saphenous vein bypass.
