GOES JUNIOR, Adenauer Marinho de Oliveira et al. Blunt popliteal artery injury with atypical evolution: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.2, pp.85-88. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492010000200013.

Traumatic knee dislocation is associated with massive muscle damage. When there are neurovascular lesions, prognosis is even worse and the limb viability is threatened. Popliteal artery lesions should be treated as soon as possible to prevent risk of limb loss, which can reach up to 80% in some case series. We report a case of a young patient who had traumatic knee dislocation associated with ipsilateral acetabular and femoral body fractures with late diagnosis (on the fifth day after the trauma) of popliteal artery lesion. The patient underwent limb revascularization with good outcome despite the severity of the lesion, which is in disagreement with the usual outcomes reported in the literature for the popliteal artery trauma with delayed treatment.

Palavras-chave : Knee; dislocation; trauma; popliteal artery.
