1Kalp ve Damar Cerrahisi Kliniği, Kartal Koşuyolu Yüksek İhtisas Eğitim ve Araştırma Hastanesi, İstanbul The dissection of peripheral arteries are very rare conditions. Atraumatic and nonaneurysmatic dissection of popliteal arteries are seen in only 4 cases in the literature. Our patient is 52 years old woman with atraumatic non aneurysmatic isolate popliteal artery dissection. She underwent to surgery because of the decrease of her claudication distance. We have seen intraoperatively an anormal morphological isolate arterial dissection. This segment has been ligaturated. Femoro-popliteal bypass has been done with ipsilateral saphenous vein graft. The succeed of the surgery is related with the true diagnosis. The suspicion of the dissection is the most important point of the diagnosis.
