Venous thromboembolism is a significant cause of morbidity in the United States. Thrombectomy devices are not currently the standard of treatment in deep venous thromboses. The Amplatz thrombectomy device is used for arterial occlusions and pulmonary emboli, but its regular use in venous thromboses has not been documented in the literature. We report a unique case of treatment of lower extremity deep venous thrombosis with the Amplatz thrombectomy device.
