Persistent Sciatic Artery Aneurysm Treated by Exclusion and Obturator Bypass
Persistent sciatic artery (PSA) aneurysms occur infrequently and present a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The PSA is often associated with a hypoplastic femoral system meaning revascularisation is necessary in addition to exclusion of the aneurysm. We present a case of a PSA aneurysm presenting with symptoms of sciatic nerve compression, successfully treated with exclusion and revascularisation with an obturator bypass.
