Abstract

We report a case of a 14-year-old girl who underwent arthroscopic subtotal meniscectomy after a bucket-handle tear of the lateral meniscus followed by a pseudoaneurysm of the popliteal artery. A revision surgery and reconstruction of the artery with a saphena magna patch was necessary to repair the defect. At 1-year follow-up, excellent range of motion, function of the knee, and a normal quality of life was achieved.
