Despite ­the prov­en reli­abil­ity of poly­eth­y­lene ter­ephth­late (­PET) ­grafts, struc­tu­ral ­defects result­ing in ­graft rup­ture ­and ­false aneu­rysm for­ma­tion ­have ­been spo­rad­i­cal­ly ­described. Two cas­es of ­late, ­non anas­to­mot­ic, ­false aneu­rysms of ­PET femor­o­pop­li­teal ­grafts, ­are report­ed. The diag­no­sis is read­i­ly appar­ent on clin­i­cal exam­ina­tion ­and imag­ing stud­ies, ­which dis­play an aneu­rysm ­along ­the ­course of ­the ­graft, ­remote ­from ­the anas­tom­o­sis. The ­extent of ­the ­repair ­depends on ­the ­extent of ­the degen­er­a­tive pro­cess.
