Persistent Sciatic Artery Aneurysm with Limb Ischemia: A Report of Two Cases

Ann Vasc Dis. 2017 Mar 24;10(1):44-47. doi: 10.3400/ Epub 2017 Mar 31.


We report two cases of persistent sciatic artery (PSA) aneurysm with limb ischemia. Physicians who treat peripheral artery disease should be aware that PSA is a very rare congenital malformation of the lower extremities that is potentially hazardous, and that revascularization should be performed when a PSA aneurysm is treated.

Keywords: aneurysm; limb ischemia; persistent sciatic artery.
