Abstract

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a rare but significant cause of disability usually diagnosed in young, healthy adults. Advancements in diagnostic imaging modalities have prompted a current report of our recent experience with PAES in a middle-aged military population at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The addition of computed tomographic angiography (CTA) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) permit accurate and facile diagnosis of this complex syndrome.
