Abstract: Popliteal pseudoaneurysm is a rare but important complication of knee arthroplasties. To our knowledge, this complication has not been reported previously in the literature after unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. Apart from intraoperatively caused arterial injuries, obese patients and other previous cardiovascular diseases may be potential factors of risks for pseudoaneurysm in knee surgeries. As it is an uncommon complication and it has inconspicuous symptoms, both diagnosis and treatment can be delayed. This means that a high level of suspicion is necessary to prevent serious complications derived from pseudoaneurysms. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE Level IV.
