Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) is a severe obstruction of the arteries which markedly reduces blood flow to the extremities (hands, feet and legs) and has progressed to the point of severe pain and even skin ulcers or sores.
Here, we report a case of a 55 year-old male who was diagnosed with the adductor canal compression syndrome–a rarely described non-traumatic disorder of the lower limb resulting from the external compression of the superficial femoral artery, that may present with the symptoms ranging from intermittent exercise induced claudication up to arterial obstruction and critical limb ischemia.
