BACKGROUND Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) results from an anomalous relationship between the popliteal artery and the myofascial structures of the popliteal fossa. The most common presenting symptoms include intermittent pain in the feet and calves on exercise, resulting in lameness. PAES can lead to popliteal artery thrombosis, stenosis, distal arterial thromboembolism, or arterial aneurysm.

A false aneurysm or pseudoaneurysm (PA) is the formation of a pulsatile and encapsulated hematoma in communication with the lumen of a perforated artery. Its origin is different but most cases are associated with a traumatic event. Currently, the referenced treatment is endovascular surgery but it is not feasible for the majority of vascular surgeons working in a tropical environment.

OBJECTIVE After internal carotid artery (ICA) sacrifice without revascularization for complex aneurysms, ischemic complications can occur. In addition, hemodynamic alterations in the circle of Willis create conditions conducive to the formation of de novo aneurysms or the enlargement of existing untreated aneurysms. Therefore, the revascularization technique remains indispensable.

Saphenous vein graft aneurysm (SVGA) is one of the chronic complications after coronary aorta bypass grafting (CABG) and may be caused by atherosclerosis-like phenomena of the vein graft, weakness around the vein valve, rupturing of the suture of the graft anastomosis, or perioperative graft injury. We describe a case of a large, growing saphenous vein graft aneurysm that was followed serially by chest radiography and computed tomography. Eighteen years after CABG, an SVGA (23 × 24 mm) was incidentally detected.

Jordan P Makela, Zach M DeBoard, Paul Cisek
We report a case of a symptomatic and rapidly expanding aneurysm of an in situ saphenous vein graft in a 70-year-old man with extensive prior open and endovascular procedures for aneurysmal disease. He was found to have full-length aneurysmal dilation with rapid progression over the course of 6 months. Successful ligation and exclusion with subtotal excision of the aneurysmal segment was performed, and revision bypass was foregone because of adequate distal perfusion via collateralization.

OBJECT Management of complex aneurysms of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) can be challenging. Lesions not amenable to endovascular techniques or direct clipping might require a bypass procedure with aneurysm obliteration. Various bypass techniques are available, but an algorithmic approach to classifying these lesions and determining the optimal bypass strategy has not been developed.

Saphenous vein graft aneurysms are rare but are potentially fatal and their optimal management is not clearly established. Herein, we report a case of a saphenous vein graft aneurysm that was successfully treated with surgical intervention, including aneurysmal resection and re-grafting. The aneurysm, detected 36 years after coronary artery bypass grafting, was located at the proximal part of the saphenous vein graft to the posterolateral branch; the flow of the left anterior descending coronary artery was limited due to compression of the left internal thoracic artery by the adjacent aneurysm.
