The article presents a case report of a seventy-five-year-old man which was brought to the medical institution for evaluation and treatment of persistent edema in the lower extremity due to femoral vein compression. The patient had a history of uncomplicated primary metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty for end-stage osteoarthritis through a 56-mm Durom acetabular cup, a 50-mm Metasul LDH femoral head. It diagnosed a extraluminal compression of the femoral vein by a thigh mass.
