MOTOKI, André Hideo et al. Acute thrombosis of isolated femoral artery aneurysm: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.4, pp.376-379. ISSN 1677-5449.

Common femoral artery aneurysms are rare; however, they are the second most frequent type of peripheral aneurysm, popliteal artery aneurysms being the most common. They usually have atherosclerotic ethiology. The complications of this aneurysm are thromboembolism and, more rarely, rupture. This article aimed at reporting the case of a 59-year-old male patient with complaint of sudden pain in his left leg associated with coldness, paleness and absence of pulses. Color Doppler ultrasound showed a thrombosed aneurysm of the common femoral artery. The patient was successfully submitted to aneurysm resection with reconstruction of the arterial bed.

Keywords : Aneurysm; femoral artery; thrombosis.
