PIZZAMIGLIO, Matteo et al. Adventitial cystic disease with spontaneous recanalization of popliteal artery. Angiología [online]. 2020, vol.72, n.6, pp.312-314.  Epub Feb 01, 2021. ISSN 1695-2987.

Cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery is a rare disease that usually mani-fests with intermittent claudicating. Patients are usually young and without risk fac-tors for atherosclerosis.

In this report, we present a case of a 52 years old man with thrombosis of popliteal artery which recanalized spontaneously a year later. Given the persistence of claudi-cating and the suspicion of cystic adventitial disease, we decided to perform resection of the affected artery and revascularization with prosthetic grafting.

Keywords : Popliteal artery; Adventicial cyst; Intermittent claudication; Bypass graft.
