Abstract
A persistent sciatic artery (PSA) is very rare congenital vascular anomaly which is present in 0.025% to 0.04% of the population by an angiographic study. A PSA is usually combined with aneurismal disease or thromboembolic events because of its arteriosclerosis and vessel wall degeneration. The treatments of symptomatic PSA are comprised of exclusion of PSA from circulation and bypass surgery for the lower limb. However, surgical treatment should be tailored to its anatomy and presentation. We report a successful treatment of PSA with distal thromboembolism by thromboembolectomy without bypass surgery. ©The Korean Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. 2012.
