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.
