Pseudoaneurysm of the popliteal artery is much less common than true aneurysm in this location. We report 3 cases of popliteal artery pseudoaneurysms, each of differing etiopathology, one presenting 3 months after trauma, one following aortic valve replacement for aortic regurgitation with suspected endocarditis, with no organism detected, and the 3rd of infective etiology. The clinical presentation and surgical management are discussed with a review of the literature.
