We report a case of a 41-year-old woman who underwent surgical removal of an uterine leiomyoma, complicated by accidental injury of the left external iliac artery, treated by suturing. A few days after the intervention the patient was treated with emergency percutaneous stent implantation for acute thrombotic occlusion of the external iliac artery. Two years later, the patient began to complain of pain in the left leg, as an 'electric shock' sensation in the leg during squatting and leg adduction on the trunk. An angiographic control showed a critical in-stent restenosis at the level of a misplaced stent. Thus the patient was submitted to surgical exploration and stent removal.
