INTRODUCTION: Saphenous mononeuropathy has been a well recognized consequence of lower extremity surgery. However, this complication has not been previously described with popliteal vein aneurysm repair.
CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 42-year-old woman with a saphenous mononeuropathy after popliteal vein aneurysm repair. Her saphenous neuropathy was confirmed by nerve conduction studies. Her case gives us an opportunity to review saphenous mononeuropathy and its many different etiologies. We also review the role of electrodiagnostic studies in the diagnosis of saphenous mononeuropathy.
CONCLUSIONS: Though this particular iatrogenic injury has not previously been described, both neurologists and surgeons should be aware of this complication following popliteal vein aneurysm resection with saphenous vein interposition.
