A case of popliteal artery entrapment syndrome: easy to miss in early angiographic phase of bone scan

Authors: Emran Askari, Ramin Sadeghi, Narjess Ayati.

ABSTRACT

Background: Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a common vascular pathology in young athletes which is usually diagnosed based on magnetic resonance angiography findings. Although three-phase bone scan is a sensitive imaging modality in high turnover osteoblastic conditions, it does not have an established role in evaluating chronic pain syndromes and vascular pathologies. Case Presentation: We report an atypical case of popliteal artery entrapment syndrome which was incidentally found in a patient who was evaluated for skeletal malignancy. Conclusion: This case emphasizes the importance of attention to the first two phases of bone scan despite normal whole body images.

Keywords:
Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome, PAES, chronic compartment syndrome, bone scan, magnetic resonance angiography
