Embolism of the popliteal artery after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a case report and literature review

Embolism of the popliteal artery after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a case report and literature review

Arterial complications after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) are rare. We present a case report of a 44 year old male patient with a subtotal occlusion of the popliteal artery 17 days after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Embolectomy and anticoagulant therapy led to full recovery of the peripheral circulation as well as sensory loss in the foot. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of an embolus of the popliteal artery after ACLR without relation to graft fixation. A literature review on vascular complications after ACLR is presented.
