We report a case of progressive thrombotic occlusion of the left common iliac artery in a 41-year-old woman after anterior interbody fusion, which initially presented only as a sensation of numbness. Diagnosis was delayed until complete arterial occlusion occurred 36 h after surgery. A sensory deficit may be the only early sign of a progressive thrombotic arterial occlusion. In anterior spinal surgery, routine postoperative vascular monitoring of the lower extremities is recommended and mandatory for early diagnosis and treatment of this rare complication.
