Abstract

We present a case of a 16-year-old cyclist who was referred for evaluation to the Vascular Outpatient's Clinic with symptoms of intermittent claudication. Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome was suspected. The diagnostic angiography confirmed the initial diagnosis and elective surgery was planned. Successful vascular reconstruction was performed using reversed saphenous vein, leading to complete recovery. The paper briefly discusses epidemiology, anatomical variations and diagnostic modalities used in investigation of a disease, which is not often encountered in Polish medical literature.
