Aneurysms of the peripheral arteries usually involve the femoral or popliteal regions. Although not as common as abdominal aortic aneurysms, they carry a significant morbidity if left untreated. Rupture is a rare complication, but embolization or thrombosis may frequently threaten the viability of the limb. Elective repair of peripheral aneurysms will prevent complications of these lesions. This paper outlines the history, diagnosis, and treatment of peripheral aneurysms with emphasis on nursing care.
