Abstract

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a non-artherosclerotic cause of claudication and acute ischemia of the legs in young athletic individuals. It is classified in terms of the abnormal anatomical relationship between the popliteal artery and surrounding structures. All types of PAES have the same pathophysiology. Repetitive arterial compression by surrounding structures causes progressive vascular injury. Bilateral PAES is reported in about 30% of cases. Bilateral PAES is usually of the same type in each artery; exceptions are rare. We report a case of a young athletic patient who suffered bilateral PAES of two different types.
