There are various causes of the formation of arterial pseudoaneurysms, including trauma, surgical procedures, infection and iatrogenic injuries. A popliteal aneurysm was detected in a patient with pain and discomfort in his leg. The patient had a history of knee surgery. The aneurysm was treated surgically. Aneurysms following penetrating arterial injury resulting from surgical intervention requiring the use of surgical devices is one of the possible traumatic causes.
