A venous aneurysm is a relatively rare disease defined by cystic vasodilated lesions in a general vein. Popliteal venous aneurysm (PVA) is a rare clinical entity, and the first signs may be a thromboembolic event. They can cause potentially life-threatening diseases, such as pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis. A left-sided inferior vena cava (IVC) is a common anomaly associated with venous thrombus, resulting in anatomical variations in the venous return from the lower limbs. The general vascular malformation of PVA and left-sided IVC should also be preoperatively understood because of the unpredictable risk of thromboembolic complications.
