Acute thrombo-embolic occlusions of the subclavian artery account for less than 1% of all acute arterial occlusions of the extremities. One such case is presented and the management discussed with special reference to the technique of embolectomy and the treatment of the reperfusion syndrome with either fasciotomy or mannitol. The question of anticoagulation is also examined.
