From the Department of Vascular Surgery Royal Infirmary, Leicester, UK
Adventitial cystic disease of the popliteal artery (ACDPA) is an unusual cause of a unilateral progressive intermittent claudication in young or middle-aged men. In the case described here, ultrasound (US) examination provided the preoperative diagnosis. The lesion was dealt with by simple evacuation of the cyst and excision of the wall. This simple treatment is all that is required in the majority of cases and provides good long-term results.
