Abstract

We describe a case of an infected popliteal artery stent with septic emboli presenting 6 years after peripheral vascular intervention for intermittent claudication. Management included resection of the stent and popliteal artery and revascularization by femoral-popliteal bypass with autogenous vein. This case demonstrates that peripheral stent infections can develop years after intervention. We performed an English-language PubMed literature review of arterial peripheral vascular stent infections on using the search term, “Non-coronary stent or stent graft infection from 1966 to present.” Written informed consent was obtained for publication.
