Supplementary Material

A video loop of Doppler Ultrasound has been provided as supplementary material. This shows a cross section of the popliteal fossa, and demonstrates a patent popliteal artery at rest. The patient was then instructed to forcibly plantarflex their ankle, and the flow in the artery is seen to stop as occlusion occurs.
