Isolated iliac vein injury caused by blunt pelvic trauma is a rare condition that is difficult to diagnose and often fatal. We report a case of a 52-year-old female who presented with life-threatening isolated iliac vein injury caused by blunt pelvic trauma that was successfully managed with endovascular uncovered stent placement. Although further studies are warranted to clarify the hemostatic mechanism, uncovered stent placement can be considered as an alternative treatment option to covered stent placement for life-threatening iliac vein injury when a covered stent is not rapidly available.
