Ugur Gocen, Mehmet Sah Topcuoglu, Atakan Atalay, Vecih Keklik.


Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) presents with intermittent claudication; however, in the later stages, acute
ischemia can occur as a result of complete arterial occlusion or embolism. We present a patient that symptomatic with
plantar flexion. PAES was diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and angiography. In operation medial
head of gastrocnemius was resected and popliteal artery resection end to end anastomosis technic was performed. After
surgery patient discharged with no symptom and problem. Ischemic symptoms in the lower leg in young patients with
extremity movement, PAES must be considered. Correct diagnosis for PAES are important for preventing deterioration
in the patientÂ’s clinical condition.

Key words: Popliteal entrapment syndrome, Claudication intermittans, Plantar flexion, Medial head of gastrocnemius.
