Abstract

Traumatic isolated common iliac artery occlusion is unusual. Only rare eases of common lilac arterial injuries resulting from blunt abdominal trauma have been reported, and most of them were attributed to the seat- belt syndrome and associated with visceral organ perforation or pelvic fracture. We reported an unusual isolated common iliac artery occlusion secondary to atherosclerotic plaque rupture from blunt abdominal compressive trauma without other visceral injury. This case presented with acute limb ischemia and paralysis that was successfully treated by thromboendarterectomy. The symptoms and signs, surgical modalities, and associated injuries were reported and the literature was also reviewed.
