Abstract

Lundgren JM, Davis BA. Endartery stenosis of the popliteal artery mimicking gastrocnemius strain: a case report. 2004;85:1548-51. This report presents a case of leg pain in a recreational athlete that was caused by a stenotic lesion of an endartery branch of the popliteal artery. Isolated areas of arterial stenosis are rarely reported in the sports medicine literature as the primary cause of leg pain. This may be due in part to the difficulty of obtaining the diagnosis. This study includes a review of the relevant anatomic, pathophysiologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic considerations and concludes with a discussion of the potentially underrecognized significance of arterial stenosis in the sports population.
