© 2019 The Authors Paget-Schroetter syndrome is a form of primary venous thoracic outlet syndrome whereby thrombosis of the subclavian vein is instigated by repeated and vigorous overhead activity of the arm. We describe a 35-year-old pregnant white woman at 8 weeks' gestation, a competitive swimmer by profession, who was diagnosed with a left upper extremity thrombus. First rib resection through an infraclavicular approach was performed 1 week after percutaneous pharmacomechanical thrombectomy. Repeated venography demonstrated residual thrombus requiring percutaneous pharmacomechanical thrombectomy with balloon venoplasty. We present a challenging case with focus on the unique diagnostic evaluation and management of pregnant patients with this condition.
