Ethics check

Due to the nature of the research, a check was made with the University of the Witwatersrand to confirm that informed patient consent was obtained as part of ethics committee clearance (M200828). This was confirmed to be the case on 29 Jan 2021 by a representative of the University of the Witwatersrand Human Research Ethics (Medical) Committee who confirmed that the reported research procedure was covered by the application to their committee. Specifically that all reasonable attempts were made to get patient consent for image use in the manuscript after the patient was discharged. Contacting the patient-provided phone number reached a friend of the patient who confirmed that patient had returned to a region without possibility of phone contact. It was also determined that it was not necessarily safe to physically travel to that location to seek consent confirmation in person. Given that the subject was not a minor and is de-identified in the manuscript, this was considered appropriate by the ethics board based on a report filed to them on 29 September 2020.

This is a well-written, clear and interesting case presentation which demonstrates possible clinical implications of this rare vascular anomaly. A few minor revisions/comments below:

Abstract

1. Line 1: Consider revising to “Bilateral persistent sciatic artery (PSA)”

Introduction

1. Line 1: Consider revising to “Persistent sciatic artery”

2. Consider providing a brief definition of PSA in the Introduction

Discussion

1. Line 2: Revise “and is responsible for the major blood

2. Line 8: Revise “The distal portion…”

3. Paragraph 4: For clarity, consider listing the PSA Classification in a table rather than in text

4. Paragraph 4, line 2: Revise “…with incomplete femoral artery development...”

Images

The images are good quality and well described.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. For full disclosure, the recent article you provided as an example, (Qazi E, Wilting J, Patel NR, Alenezi AO, Kennedy SA, Tan KT, Jaberi A, Mafeld S. “Arteries of the Lower Limb-Embryology, Variations, and Clinical Significance”. Can Assoc.) was authored by my colleagues.

As you pointed out, it would be ideal to have the most up-to-date literature. Considering recent literature, I would suggest the following references be updated or supplemented with a more recent reference:

Reference 7 (In terms of embryological development of the sciatic artery e.g. the above paper.)

Reference 9 (some recent theories have been suggested although I do agree that the reasons for abnormal development of the femoral arteries is not completely understood e.g. Shehzad, KN, Monib, S, Mensa, M, Halawa, MO. Bilateral persistent sciatic arteries complicated by unilateral acute lower limb ischaemia. J Surg Case Rep. 2019;2019(4):rjz119.).

Reference 14 (aneurysm complications related to PSA (consider Maldini et al. Combined percutaneous endovascular and open surgical approach in the treatment of a persistent sciatic artery aneurysm presenting with acute limb-threatening ischemia: a case report and review of the literature. Vasc Endovasc Surg. 2002;36(5):403–408)."

I opened the 3D images, which are successful, but the ct image did not open. I understand it is in the coronal view? If so it is desirable to have one in the axial as well, to understand the posterior course of the artery. After all, an axial view is a very central view in radiology. Overall I liked the concise writing. When there are too many details about subtypes I am already losing concentration ... and here they have devoted a short and clear paragraph to it. Addressing cases with clinical manifestation was also important. Overall I have no further comments :) Really a successful article.
