Department of Surgery Faculty Papers

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a rare source of claudication in young people. We present the case of a 15-year-old male athlete who presented with intermittent numbness of his right foot with exertion. Imaging revealed classic compression from a right type III popliteal artery entrapment. The left popliteal artery was chronically occluded with a large collateral vessel. He underwent release of the accessory bands of the gastrocnemius muscle with significant arteriolysis on the right side via a posterior approach. Chronic popliteal artery entrapment can be treated from a posterior approach, resulting in arterial occlusion and will be asymptomatic if well ...

Revascularization Techniques For Infra-Popliteal Peripheral Artery Disease In Diabetic Foot: A Literature Review, Raden Suhartono, Ghany H. Wijaya

The New Ropanasuri Journal of Surgery

Foot ulcers are one of the problems that are often encountered in uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. With diabetic peripheral neuropathy, the typical clinical symptoms of PAD (peripheral arterial disease) may be obscured, leading to critical limb ischemia (CLTI). Diabetes may accelerate atherosclerosis that diminishes blood flow in PAD—further, diabetic patients with PAD often enfaces infra-popliteal lesions and require revascularization. However, studies on revascularization techniques in infra-popliteal PAD remain minimal. We reviewed the literature on EBSCO, and PubMed focused on the revascularization techniques in PAD, namely: expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), saphenous vein graft (SVG), atherectomy, surgical revascularization first, revascularization with endovascular bypass ...
