Popliteal artery aneurysms occur in the arteries of the legs behind the knee. PAAs usually do not rupture. Instead, a clot forms and blocks blood flow to the lower leg. If this occurs, bypass surgery is necessary for the preservation of the leg. Without immediate surgery, the leg could be lost requiring amputation.

You can trust the vascular specialists at Vascular Health Partners to help diagnose and treat your popliteal artery aneurysm. If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment, please call our office at (518) 782-3900.
