Hello and welcome to justanswer!

Such aneurysm does occur mostly after partial and complete knee surgical procedures.During such procedures occurrence of an aneurysm does happen though the incidence rate is very low.A stent placed inside the vessels solves the problem of developing dangerous clots etc. and this operation takes a few hours time, depending upon many factors .
Hope i have answered your question.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
