CASE REPORT

Iliofemoral Thrombosis Secondary to Iliac Compression Syndrome in Double Inferior Vena Cava

See-Wei Low1, Kapildeo Lotun2, Kwan Seung Lee2

From 1University of Arizona South Campus and 2Sarver Heart Center, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.

 

Abstract

Duplication of the inferior vena cava (D-IVC) joined by a pelvic connector is a rare congenital anomaly. May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS), also known as iliac compression syndrome, is caused by a localized stricture at the point where the left common iliac vein is crossed by the right common iliac artery resulting in left common femoral deep venous thrombosis. The combination pathology of D-IVC and MTS are rarely described. We describe a case of a patient with iliofemoral thrombosis precipitated by MTS with D-IVC, heterozygous mutation of factor V Leiden and describe our successful treatment approach.

 

CASE REPORT

Embolism of a Fully-Expanded Right Coronary Ostium Stent to the Right Brachial Artery During Radial-Access Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Shabnam Rashid; Chris Bishwanauth Sawh; Dwayne Gavin Conway, MB ChB, MD

From Leeds Teaching Hospital, Leeds, West Yorkshire; Sheffield Teaching Hospital, Sheffield, South Yorkshire; and Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom.

 

Abstract

Stent embolism is a rare complication of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), usually encountered when an undeployed stent unintentionally dislocates from the balloon. There is little published literature regarding incidence or clinical outcomes of embolism of deployed coronary stents. We report the case of a 56-year-old male who had embolism of a fully deployed stent from the right coronary ostium to his brachial artery during PCI. This was managed conservatively without any clinical events after 12 months.
