Acute occlusion of the aorta following bilateral aortoiliac procedures

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty is a very common procedure and it is considered quite a safe and effective technique. We present a case of a patient who developed acute occlusion of the aorta and iliac vessels following bilateral aortoiliac angioplasty. There have been cases reported of acute iliac and femoral occlusion following bilateral aortoiliac angioplasty but so far there has not been a reported case of acute occlusion of the aorta following aortic and bilateral iliac procedures.
