Upper limb deep vein thrombosis, especially the one associated to endovascular implantation of continuous electro stimulation systems, is becoming a problem of growing clinical importance. We describe a case of a 69 year-old female with subclavian vein thrombosis, which occurred shortly after the insertion of a pacemaker. At the same time, we discuss the current knowledge about risk factors, diagnostic and therapeutic management of this pathology, as well as possibility of prevention.
