    Abstract

    Atherosclerotic aneurysms of the deep femoral artery are very rare. We report the first 2 published Scandinavian cases. Both were present in elderly smoking men. They presented with acute local pain, swelling and circulatory collapse. Ultrasonography and angiography demonstrated femoral aneurysm but it was only at operation that the relation to the deep femoral artery was established. Simple ligation of the deep femoral artery was performed in one case. The other patient had a 6 mm PTFE graft interpositioned. Both made an uneventful recovery.
