It revealed multiple arterial thrombi starting with a big floating thrombus in the left ventricle (Figure 1), followed by intramural thrombus in the distal descending aorta (with diameter of 9 mm) (Figure 2) and thrombus in the superior mesenteric artery and the right popliteal artery (Figure 3).
Color Doppler ultrasound examination of the left popliteal artery revealed a well-defined, hypoechoic lesion with scant internal echoes and posterior acoustic enhancement abutting the popliteal artery.
Duplex ultrasound was performed and an embolization (Rutherford Grade 2b) and bilateral PAAs were found, which on computed tomography angiogram (CTA) measured 62 mm and 82 mm with the maximum diameters in the right and left popliteal artery, respectively.
Two dimensional (2D) ultrasound was used for the detection of the condition of vascular wall intima cavity along the anatomical position through the visualization of the femoral artery popliteal artery anterior tibial artery posterior tibial artery and dorsal pedal artery and then the endovascular blood flow and pipe cavity with Color Doppler Flow Imaging (CDFI) was observed to take samples from blood vessels with Pluse Width (PW) again to obtain the largest blood flow spectrum.
8%) patient with popliteal artery injury who finally had an amputation.
Five superficial femoral artery injuries were associated with a femur fracture, and one popliteal artery injury was associated with fracture of the tibia and fibula.
He was first treated at a local hospital, where examinations showed a IIIC[degrees] (Gustilo and Anderson) open knee fracture with lesions of both the popliteal artery and vein as well as damage to the peroneal and popliteal nerves.
He noted that knee dislocation involves progressive hyperextension of the knee, and that, at 30 degrees of hyperextension, the posterior knee capsule is rent, and at 50 degrees, the popliteal artery actually fails.
