In patients with popliteal aneurysm there is 37% chance of abdominal aortic aneurysm and 50 % chance of coexisting popliteal aneurysm on the contralateral leg.
Subclavian artery aneurysms can produce central neurologic findings or upper extremity iscemia and are due to atherosclerosis, trauma, thoracic outlet obstruction, syphilis or cystic medial necrosis.
