Imaging Popliteal Artery Aneurysms

Abstract


Relevance Popliteal artery aneurysm is seldom, but very dangerous disease with serious complications. These are the most common peripheral artery aneurysms (80%). Frequency of this disease range between 0.02 – 1%.
The purpose of the study To evaluate the sensitivity of ultrasound, angiography, ankle-brachial index (ABI) in diagnostic of aneurysms and complications.
Materials and methods The 62 patients were included in research work. We have been done 41 ultrasound, 34 angiography, 20 ABI.
Results and their discussion The sensitivity of duplex ultrasound is 97,5% in diagnostic of popliteal artery aneurysms. The angiography has sensitivity about 47%. ABI is useless.
Conclusion Color Doppler Ultrasound is the best method for imaging of popliteal artery aneurysms and complications, non-invasive diagnostic method, hasn’t contraindication. ABI unnecessary. Arteriography in diagnostic of thrombosis of popliteal artery aneurysm aninformative for imagine aneurism, but useful for characterization peripheral artery (autflow).
