The last decade an increasing number of Low Energy Knee Dislocations (LEKD)in obese patients have been reported in the orthopaedic and vascular surgery literature. Vascular repair in the obese can be technically challenging and is associated with more perioperative complications than in the no obese. Using a percutaneous approach to blunt injury of the popliteal artery due to LEKD in the obese patient where even more extensive soft tissue injury may complicate open repair is a novel way to avoid incisions and manipulation of the injured ischemic lower extremity.
