Abstract

A 47-year-old woman with right breast cancer underwent partial mastectomy and had irradiations to the primary and metastatic sites, including the left supraclavicular region. During catheterization of the left internal mammary artery for arterial infusion therapy, the patient developed an iatrogenic dissection and subsequent occlusion of the left subclavian artery. Arterial infusion of tissue plasminogen activator into the artery resulted in recanalization and improvement of clinical signs and symptoms.
