Abstract

Aneurysms of tibial vessels are extremely rare. The majority are pseudoaneurysms caused by trauma. Those that are true aneurysms have been associated with an inflammatory process or were mycotic in origin. We are reporting on a patient with a true posterior tibial artery aneurysm without any causative history. The aneurysm was repaired by resection and interposition of a reversed saphenous vein segment.
