Abstract

This study presents a rare case of acute lower left limb ischemia as a cause of pressure and damage to the common iliac artery as a result of central artificial hip dislocation. After a physical examination and an angio-CT, the diagnosis was confirmed and the patient was operated on immediately. The good effect of the vascular treatment was achieved after removing the acetabulum of the artificial hip joint, and common iliac artery repair, additionally after femoral artery thrombectomy. The post-operational period ran without complications, while further treatment and check-ups were carried out in the Department of General and Vascular Surgery’s outpatient department.
