Abstract

A case of acquired popliteal entrapment occurred in which a vein graft was placed medial to the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle during bypass of a popliteal aneurysm. After typical manifestations of entrapment occurred the vein graft was relocated to its proper position lateral to the medial head of the gastrocnemius muscle, which relieved the entrapment.
