|Abstract:||© 2014 Nikola Fatic, Nenad Zornic, Nemanja Radojevic, Nikola Bulatovic. In the presented case report, we evaluated the mechanism of the external iliac, the common femoral and the superficial femoral arterial thrombosis secondary to total hip arthroplasty. A 75-year-old female sufferd from 5.5 cm shorter left lower limb and same sade coxarthritis. Next day after arthroplasty and eqalisation of the lower limbs, an acute ishemia of the treated leg was presented. Multyscan CT angiography revealed the presence of the external iliac, the common femoral and the superficial femoral arterial thrombosis. From the best of our knowledge, it seems to be the only case of this arterial segment thrombosis after total hip arthroplasty and equalistaion of the lower limbs reported.|
