Abstract

We present a case report of a pseudoaneurysm of the popliteal artery after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using a bicortical tibial screw fixation 12 days after surgery. Surgical exploration and repair of an intimal lesion of the popliteal artery was performed. At 4-months' follow-up, there was still sensory loss in areas of the saphenous, medial plantar, calcaneal, and superficial peroneal nerves.
