Acute Pancreatitis and Kidney Injury Secondary to Paget-Schroetter Syndrome Following Percutaneous Mechanical Thrombectomy

Vincent Marcucci, Sindi Diko, John Danks


Paget-Schroetter syndrome (PSS) is an uncommon, though well-documented, cause of upper extremity deep vein thrombosis. Percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy and catheter-directed lysis of clot burden is considered an effective treatment for minimizing and removing deep vein thrombi, although several uncommon life-threatening sequelae may occur. Herein, we present a case of an otherwise healthy 19-year-old man who developed acute pancreatitis and kidney injury following successful treatment for PSS and discuss the possible inciting factors for pancreatic insult.
