More than 90% of all peripheral arterial aneurysms affect the popliteal and common femoral arteries and much more rarely the subclavian and brachial arteries. In a large proportion of these patients there are coexisting aneurysms of other locations as well, particularly in the infrarenal abdominal aorta.1
