Vascular complications are rare after total knee arthroplasty, and popliteal pseudoaneurysms are even more so. There are few cases reported in the literature. We present a case of an 80 year-old woman with osteoarthritis of the left knee, secondary to Genu varum, who was treated with total knee arthroplasty. On the discharge day after surgery, the patient suffered a popliteal pseudoaneurysm that was successfully treated with an intravascular stent introduced by an inguinal approach. © 2011 SECOT.
