Serum uric acid was found elevated in 25 out of 45 patients with Peripheral arterial occlusive disease. At the present time neither the precise pathogenesis of PAOD nor the exact role of SUA in vascular disorders has been determined. There exists some data suggesting on the one hand a pathogenetic role of uric acid in PAOD, probably through ADP-induced platelet aggregation, and on the other a possible preventive and therapeutic intervention of thrombotic vascular disorders.

    Adventitial cystic disease (ACD) of the popliteal artery is an uncommon vascular condition of unknown etiology. In the present case report, we describe a case of bilateral ACD of the popliteal artery in a 58-year-old male. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of bilateral ACD of...
