Abstract

Osteochondromas are an infrequent, but significant, source of vascular injuries. Popliteal artery pseudoaneurysms are the most common sequelae, with a complex interplay of anatomic and developmental factors accounting for their prevalence. The authors present a case report, detailed discussion, and literature review of pseudoaneurysm formation in the popliteal artery.
