Abstract

A 26-year old female was admitted to the Department of General and Vascular Surgery with left common iliac vein occlusion. Three years earlier she underwent iliac vein thrombosis, which occurred during the 9th month of pregnancy. An ultrasound Doppler examination showed complete occlusion of the left iliac common vein. She was therefore qualified to undergo endovascular treatment. A PTA of the iliac vein was done and then two stents were implanted. The control ascending venography revealed flow restoration in the vein.
