Abstract

Popliteal artery aneurysm is uncommon but requires prompt recognition and treatment to prevent devastating consequences. Although surgical resection is the standard of treatment, endovascular repair has become increasingly favorable. Herein, we describe a patient with a large popliteal aneurysm that was treated successfully with overlapping covered stents.
