We encountered a popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) patient who was treated with stent placement for popliteal artery without correcting an abnormal muscular structure that compresses popliteal artery in another institution. The popliteal artery stent was occluded one year after the stent placement. The patient was treated with bypass graft by reversed saphenous vein. Interventionists should be cautious with stent placements for popliteal artery without adjusting the anomalous musculotendinous structure in patients with PAES.
