In brief: Surgery or stent
Not all popliteal aneurysms need treatment.
When indicated most patients are better served with a bypass surgery and ligation of the aneurysm or resection of the aneurysm and replace the artery with a graft. In high risk patients stenting is an option if they meet certain criteria.
