DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2020.27 Popliteal artery aneurysms are the most common peripheral artery aneurysms, although they are rarely seen.

Patient-specific treatment strategy reduces postoperative complications and recurrent interventions. In this article, we present a case who underwent surgery for a popliteal artery aneurysm eight months ago and developed critical leg ischemia.
