Resumo

O aneurisma de artéria poplítea é relativamente raro, porém representa cerca de 85% de todos os aneurismas arteriais periféricos. Apresenta-se geralmente com um quadro de complicação isquêmica e elevado risco de perda do membro acometido. Em função disso, preconiza-se seu tratamento eletivo, atualmente realizado com resultados satisfatórios pela técnica endovascular. Relatamos nossa experiência com a utilização do stent de nitinol auto-expansível revestido com PTFEe - Fluency (Bard, Alemanha), reforçado internamente com o stent de nitinol auto-expansível Zilver (Cook, EUA) no tratamento de um aneurisma de artéria poplítea.

Abstract

Popliteal artery aneurysm is relatively rare, but represents around 85% of all peripheral arterial aneurysms. It is usually presented with ischemic complication and high risk of limb loss. For that reason, its elective treatment is indicated and currently carried through with satisfactory results using endovascular techniques. We describe our experience with the use of an ePTFE-covered nitinol self-expandable stent graft - Fluency (Bard, Germany), reinforced internally with the nitinol self-expandable Zilver stent (Cook, USA) for the treatment of a popliteal artery aneurism.
