Lymphedema may develop after surgery, radiation, trauma, infections, malignant tumors, immobility and chronic venous insufficiencies. These triggering factors produce additional stress to the already impaired lymphatic system, resulting in mechanical insufficiency. However, we usually do not consider hematoma after coronary angiography as a cause of lymphedema. We report a case of a patient with lymphedema, especially on the lower extremities, after coronary angiography.
Key Words: Lymphedema, Coronary angiography
