Monomelic Ischemic Neuropathy of the Tibial and Peroneal Nerve After Onyx Embolization of Vasa Nervorum Supplying a Surgically Excluded Popliteal Artery Aneurysm

Ischemic neuropathy is an exceedingly rare complication after peripheral artery embolization. We report a case of ischemic damage to the tibial and peroneal nerve after embolization of the vasa nervorum that served as feeding collaterals to a surgically excluded popliteal artery aneurysm.
