1.  Rare Occurrence of Simultaneous Dissection, Perforation and Thrombosis of External Iliac Artery Following Diagnostic Coronary Angiography: A Case Report 
ARYA Atherosclerosis  2010;6(2):82-84.
Lower extremity complications are the most common problems encountered during transfemoral diagnostic coronary artery angiography. Dissection, thrombosis and perforation of arteries of lower extremities although not uncommon, very rarely occur simultaneously. We did not find any report in the literature in this issue. In this report we describe a case of simultaneous occurrence of all three complications during coronary angiography in one patient. It also represents some of our uncertainties regarding the best management of the patient. In this patient, arterial perforation and dissection was managed conservatively, but we applied an invasive treatment (surgical thrombectomy) for arterial thrombosis with excellent short and long-term results.
