Pulmonary embolism refers to the obstruction of the main pulmonary artery or its branches by thrombus from the venous system, resulting in the disturbance of pulmonary circulation and respiratory function. Fatal pulmonary embolism from upper extremity venous thrombosis is rare, and the axillary and subclavian veins are the most common sites of upper extremity deep venous thrombosis. The following is a report of a successful rescue case of acute pulmonary embolism caused by subclavian vein thrombosis after clavicle fracture surgery in Changsha Central Hospital.
