An 86-year-old male patient with dual true aneurysms in the unilateral popliteal artery presented with leg pain without any ischemic physical signs. A proximal 20.1¥17.9-mm saccular aneurysm was treated with a 9¥100-mm endovascular stent graft, and a distal 50.6¥54.2-mm fusiform aneurysm was treated with a 10¥100-mm endovascular stent graft. In conclusion, although surgical treatment is the gold standard, endovascular treatment should be considered as an alternative method with several benefits in high-risk patients.
