Abstract

Common femoral artery aneurysms are a rare entity, occurring in 5 out of 100,000 patients and are usually related to aneurysms in other locations. We present the case of a 61-year-old man with a chance finding of a 23 mm common femoral artery aneurysm. Surgical repair of his femoral aneurysm was performed with an 8 mm ring-shaped PTFE prosthesis with anastomosis end-to-end from the common femoral artery to the deep femoral artery and reimplantation of the superficial femoral artery. There were no complications after 30 days.
