Abstract

A man with Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome had worsening pulmonary hypertension secondary to recurrent multiple pulmonary embolism despite anticoagulation. Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy was done. However, the patient expired 10 days after surgery due to another bout of pulmonary embolism from his right arm or right chest wall.
