Abstract Os aneurismas venosos são raros, porém causam complicações tromboembólicas. Na maioria das vezes, são encontrados como achados de exame físico ou de imagem. Os aneurismas sintomáticos de veia poplítea são tratados por reparo cirúrgico, devido ao alto risco de recorrência de embolia pulmonar. A técnica mais utilizada é a aneurismectomia tangencial com venorrafia lateral. Na impossibilidade de se empregar esta técnica, faz-se a ressecção com reconstrução venosa. Os autores relatam o caso de uma paciente com aneurisma de veia poplítea, cujo diâmetro era de 44 mm, submetida à aneurismectomia tangencial e venorrafia lateral, com sucesso.Venous aneurysms are rare; however, they are potential causes of thromboembolism. Most cases are found as clinical examination or by imaging methods. Symptomatic aneurysms of the popliteal vein are treated by surgical repair due to the high risk of recurrent pulmonary embolism. The most widely used procedure is tangential aneurysmectomy and lateral venorrhaphy. If this technique is not possible, the aneurysm should be removed and venous reconstruction should be performed. The authors report the case of a patient with popliteal vein aneurysm measuring 44 mm in diameter which was successfully treated by tangential aneurysmectomy and lateral venorrhaphy.
