Acute ileofemoral artery thromboembolism due to left ventricle thrombi with spontaneous coronary artery dissection.

Jun H, Jung CW, Park KT - Ann Surg Treat Res (2014)

Bottom Line: Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is a very rare cause of peripheral artery thromboembolism.It is especially rare to show symptoms of acute limb ischemia without chest symptoms during a hospital visit.In this case, a rare case of SCAD led to left heart failure and caused left ventricle thrombi, which in turn caused peripheral thromboembolism.

It is especially rare to show symptoms of acute limb ischemia without chest symptoms during a hospital visit. In this case, a rare case of SCAD led to left heart failure and caused left ventricle thrombi, which in turn caused peripheral thromboembolism.

Figure 2: The illustration of echocardiogram of huge thrombi in left ventricle apex (arrow). LV, left ventricle; LA, left atrium.

Mentions: In CT angiography, total thrombotic occlusion was revealed from right common iliac artery to superficial femoral artery (Fig. 1). An electrocardiogram demonstrated anterolateral myocardial infarction. Transthoracic echocardiogram demonstrated several thrombi at left ventricle apex and akinesia from left ventricle apex to apical anterior wall (Fig. 2) but ejection fraction was maintained at 55%. The largest thrombi was measured at 17.4 mm.
