A 55-year-old woman presented with an ulcerative stenosis of the distal abdominal aorta. She was scheduled to undergo percutaneous aortic balloon angioplasty the next day. Upon readmission, however, she complained of lower abdominal pain. A second abdominal angiogram revealed thrombosis of the infrarenal abdominal aorta and left common iliac artery. This was treated by means of simple transcatheter thrombus aspiration and thrombolysis, followed by stenting of the aorta.
