Spontaneous Iliac Vein Rupture Due to May-Thurner Syndrome and Its Staged Management



Spontaneous Iliac Vein Rupture Due to May-Thurner Syndrome and Its Staged Management



Vascular and Endovascular Surgery 53(4): 348-350



We present a case of a 58-year-old otherwise healthy women who presented with left lower extremity deep venous thrombosis and was found to have pulmonary embolism along with a ruptured left internal iliac vein. Our patient was hemodynamically stable upon presentation; therefore, a staged approach was undertaken. Initially, an inferior vena cava filter was placed and the patient was slowly advanced to therapeutic anticoagulation and subsequently discharged. She then returned 2 weeks after discharge for venogram, mechanical thrombectomy, and stenting. At 1-year follow-up in clinic, she was found to have patent stents and resolution of symptoms.
