|Abstract:||Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a frequent cause of intermittent claudication in young patients. We present a case of a bilateral functional entrapment, where static imaging did not demonstrate the occlusion until the patient's feet were placed in forced plantar flexion. A high index of clinical suspicion and dynamic tests with provocative manoeuvres are needed to diagnose this condition.|
