In daily phlebology practice, duplex ultrasound may sometimes reveal unusual pathways of reflux. A 46-year-old woman presented with heaviness and pain at the medial side of the left thigh after exercise. A tortuous intramuscular course of a large refluxing vein was seen in the sartorius muscle in connection with a femoral vein perforator cranially and the below-knee great saphenous vein distally. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed these findings. Treatment consisted of a combination of foam sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, and phlebectomies...

BACKGROUND: Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) are a major health problem because of their high prevalence and associated high cost of care. Despite the widespread use of compression, treatment recurrence rates remain high. Numerous studies have suggested that regular use of compression stockings reduces VLU recurrences. However, there are limited data concerning how long compression hosiery should be worn after ulcer healing and which class of compression hosiery achieves better results in the prevention of VLU recurrences...

OBJECTIVE: There is an increasing evidence base to support the use of extended pharmacologic thromboprophylaxis in selected surgical patients to prevent venous thromboembolism (VTE). The benefit of graduated compression stockings (GCS) in addition to extended pharmacologic thromboprophylaxis is unclear. The aim of this study was to systematically review the evidence relating to the effectiveness of using GCS in conjunction with extended pharmacologic thromboprophylaxis to prevent VTE in surgical patients...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) through an anterior tibial vein approach for acute extensive lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT). METHODS: There were 125 consecutive patients with acute extensive lower extremity DVT who received CDT through an anterior tibial vein approach between October 2014 and June 2017. The patients with iliac vein compression syndrome were treated with balloon dilation and stent implantation after CDT...

BACKGROUND: Lymphocele (LC) and lymphocutaneous fistula (LF) are infrequent but serious complications that occur when lymphatics are disrupted during a vascular procedure. Conservative management with bed rest, extremity elevation, aspiration, and pressure dressing is often ineffective. This study evaluated the effectiveness of isosulfan blue (ISB) to identify disrupted lymphatics for ligation. METHODS: Between 1998 and 2016, there were 33 lymphatic complications treated with ISB-directed ligation in 32 patients...

Anticoagulation is the cornerstone for the treatment of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. On occasion, this is not possible because of bleeding complications or, rarely, breakthrough pulmonary embolism associated with this treatment method. The development of vena cava interruption in the 1970s was a critical advance in the treatment of these patients. Placement of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters has been steadily increasing since their introduction. Nonetheless, the incidence of complications associated with placement of these devices is largely unknown...

OBJECTIVE: Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) is a low-cost and minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins. There is a relative paucity of outcome reports. METHODS: UGFS procedures at a tertiary public hospital between 2010 and 2017 were studied. Either the great saphenous vein (GSV) or small saphenous vein (SSV) was treated. Pretreatment, in-treatment, 6-week, and 1-year post-treatment ultrasound reports were analyzed. The primary outcome was to determine whether vein diameter predicts obliteration failure...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether left iliac vein (LIV) compression had similar correlation with the risk of left iliac deep venous thrombosis (DVT; iliac vein involvement) and infrainguinal DVT (without iliac vein involvement). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of records and enhanced computed tomography images was conducted of 278 patients with left-sided DVT (iliac DVT, 228 patients; infrainguinal DVT, 50 patients) and 232 control patients without DVT on either side...

The endovascular treatment of nutcracker syndrome is currently considered by some to be the preferred treatment option in this pathologic process despite its risks. However, currently, there are few data about the pure endovascular approach in the posterior nutcracker syndrome related to evolution in the midterm. We present two successful cases of a complete endovascular approach in this disease, with follow-up of 9 months and 17 months without complications.

BACKGROUND: Risk factors for chronic venous disease (CVD) have been widely reported in population health management. However, predisposing factors associated with patients treated for advanced stages of CVD have yet to be established. We examined the demographics and risk factors associated with advanced clinical presentation of CVD for patients referred for vein ablation. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of our institutional Vascular Quality Initiative Varicose Vein Registry included endovenous laser treatment and radiofrequency ablation procedures at our tertiary institution, community hospital, and outpatient vein clinic between January 2015 and December 2016...

OBJECTIVE: Early hemorrhage control before the operating room is essential to reduce the significant mortality associated with traumatic injuries of the vena cava. Conventional approaches present logistical challenges on the battlefield or in the trauma bay. A retrievable stent graft would allow rapid hemorrhage control in the preoperative setting when endovascular expertise is not immediately available and without committing a patient to the limitations of current permanent stents. This study details a refined retrievable Rescue stent for percutaneous delivery that was examined in a porcine survival model of penetrating caval hemorrhage...

OBJECTIVE: Management of chronic deep vein disease focuses on the alleviation of reflux and obstruction. For the suprainguinal veins, the main underlying pathologic process is obstruction, which has been recognized as a significant contributor to chronic venous insufficiency. This is currently being addressed with venous stenting and the development of dedicated stents designed for this segment of the venous system. Treatment of the femoropopliteal vein (FPV) is far more challenging because of the idiosyncratic anatomy, the hemodynamic physiology, and the technical aspects of size mismatch and valve flow dynamics in managing deep venous reflux...

OBJECTIVE: The role of follow-up venous duplex ultrasound (DUS) after acute lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT) remains unclear, yet it is commonly performed. We aimed to clarify the role of follow-up DUS. Our primary objective was to determine the association between the presence of residual venous obstruction (RVO) on DUS and DVT recurrence or propagation (rDVT). Secondary objectives included finding risk factors associated with RVO and rDVT. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of patients diagnosed with DVT on DUS from January 1, 2011, to December 31, 2013, that received a follow-up DUS...

Venous complications of iliac artery aneurysms are rare. We report the case of bilateral iliac aneurysms that resulted in iliac vein outflow obstruction despite endovascular aneurysm repair. In our patient, bilateral iliac vein stenting resulted in symptom resolution.
