Popliteal artery aneurysms (PAAs) are the most common of all peripheral aneurysms. However, a ruptured PAA (rPAA) is rare, accounting for approximately 2% of all PAAs. We report a large rPAA successfully treated with endovascular repair using the Covera Plus covered stent graft. The patient did well. This is the first reported use in the world of a Covera stent for a rPAA.
