Abstract

Although venous aneurysms are rare, typically asymptomatic, and most commonly found incidentally on imaging studies, patients with this pathology can develop pulmonary emboli owing to these aneurysms acting as a nidus for thrombus formation. There is no clear consensus regarding conservative management with anticoagulation vs operative intervention as the best treatment of deep venous aneurysms. We report the clinical course and surgical treatment of a patient presenting with both bilateral common femoral vein and bilateral popliteal venous aneurysms who had a known history of prior symptomatic pulmonary emboli.
