Popliteal Artery Injury

Popliteal artery injury is uncommon after knee dislocation, and the surgical revascularization is still the standard treatment male patient who sustained a trauma to the right knee resulting in posterior dislocation of knee joint and blunt popliteal artery injury had an endovascular repair by catheter-directed thrombolysis successfully. Although a few papers have described the endovascular treatment of blunt popliteal artery injury by implanting the stents in the popliteal artery before, this case is an exploration to solve this kind of lesion without leaving stent behind to avoid the possibility of stent related complications. Knee dislocation itself is an infrequent injury and it accounts for less than 1% of all extremity injuries, and the prevalence of vascular injury associated with knee dislocation is about 30% . The standard vascular repair when encountering a blunt damage of popliteal artery is through an interposition saphenous vein graft, although a prolonged period of postoperative recovery is common. Minimal invasive endovascular therapies offer an attractive treatment alternative due to the ability to perform diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic intervention nearly simultaneously with a percutaneous approach. In addition, faster access to difficult anatomical locations is usually possible, resulting in less blood loss and shorter recovery time. A few papers have described the reconstruction of the damaged popliteal artery by stents implanting although the site of popliteal artery is not suitable for stent implantation since the high frequency of stent fracture. Basing on the pathological change of popliteal artery injury after knee dislocation is the damage of vessel wall and the development of acute thrombosis subsequently; we want to solve this kind of lesion by catheter-directed thrombolysis without leaving anything behind.

OMICS Group International is an open access online publishing group which has 700+ peer-reviewed journals, organizes 3000+ International Scientific Conferences per year, have around 50,000+ editorial board members and 1000+ Scientific associations. Medical Journals provide a platform for outstanding research around the globe in the field of medicine. These scholarly journals aim to contribute to the progress and application of scientific discoveries, by providing free access to the research information. The published work reaches the general public and the scientific community immediately after publication, thus providing higher citation rates for the author. Medical Journals are supported by 5000 internationally renowned editorial board members and a high quality review board. Medical Journals use online Editorial Manager System for quick and high quality review process. Articles of Medical journals are subjected to peer reviewing and these are included in the standard indexing databases like ISI, Scopus, EBSCO, CAS, HINARI etc. All the articles published in Medical journals are permanently archived in respective peer reviewed journals thus providing unrestricted utilization and requisition of the scientific information.
