We report a case of a thrombotic common iliac lesion with concern for elevated risk of downstream embolization during intervention. In this case, a transradial approach enabled the novel, simultaneous deployment of two embolic protection devices, one in the internal iliac artery and the other in the common femoral artery, for complete downstream protection during intervention. An endovascular stent, which accommodates a 0.035-inch wire lumen, was able to be delivered over both 0.014-inch protection device wires simultaneously and was successfully deployed with evidence of captured embolic material.
