A 25-year-old semiprofessional soccer player was referred to our hospital because of intermittent claudication of the right leg. He had right limb trauma while playing soccer, and a selfexpandable stent was implanted for the occluded femoropopliteal artery. One month later, he complained of acute recurrence of claudication. Angiography revealed an occlusion of the stent due to cross-sectional stent squeeze and partial fracture. The occlusion was successfully revascularized with additional stenting. The patient was asymptomatic at 5-month follow up. Early self-expandable stent squeeze is quite rare. The forces exerted in the popliteal artery while playing soccer may have caused this phenomenon.

Abstract

A 25-year-old semiprofessional soccer player was referred to our hospital because of intermittent claudication of the right leg. He had right limb trauma while playing soccer, and a selfexpandable stent was implanted for the occluded femoropopliteal artery. One month later, he complained of acute recurrence of claudication. Angiography revealed an occlusion of the stent due to cross-sectional stent squeeze and partial fracture. The occlusion was successfully revascularized with additional stenting. The patient was asymptomatic at 5-month follow up. Early self-expandable stent squeeze is quite rare. The forces exerted in the popliteal artery while playing soccer may have caused this phenomenon.
