Abstract

Unilateral arm swelling without thrombosis is rare. We report a case of significant right arm swelling due to chronic total occlusion of the right subclavian vein in a 62 year-old haemodialysis-dependent female patient. Endovascular reconstruction of the subclavian vein with a 16 × 80 mm Epic balloon-expanding stent (Boston Scientific, USA) was performed through the retrograde route for chronic total occlusion, in which a guidewire was passed from the right superior vena cava. On the following day, left arm swelling had improved. Nine months following the stent placement, the right arm swelling had not recurred.
