OBJECTIVE: To use subcutaneous ultrasonography to differentiate legs with edema because of obesity-related functional venous insufficiency (FVIob), immobility-related FVI (FVIim), secondary lymphedema (LE), LE complicated by obesity (LEob), and LE complicated by immobility (LEim). METHODS: Ninety-nine legs with edema (16 FVIob, 32 FVIim, 22 LE, 9 LEob, and 20 LEim), and 10 normal legs were examined. Subcutaneous tissue ultrasonography was performed at eight points (medial, lateral, upper, lower, thigh, and calf) in each leg...

BACKGROUND: Venous drainage from the leg is poorly understood, and it is difficult to quantify it hemodynamically. Attempts have been made using duplex ultrasound scanning and venous occlusion air plethysmography (APG). However, they have limited value in day-to-day clinical practice. This is because venous drainage measurements have never been validated successfully against increasing obstruction pressures. The hypothesis is that the novel gravitational venous drainage index (VDI) in milliliters/second is reduced in response to increasing venous obstruction, and the aim was to quantify this, using stepwise inflations of a thigh cuff...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper was to describe patterns of superficial reflux in the groin with respect to the terminal valve (TV), which is located at the saphenous opening to the common femoral vein, the great saphenous vein, and its tributary veins. METHODS: This study included 2019 legs with chronic venous insufficiency that received endoluminal varicose vein treatment because of varicosities with insufficiency of the saphenofemoral junction (SFJ). In a preoperative duplex ultrasound investigation of the superficial vein system, reflux after provocation in the SFJ, great saphenous vein, cranial veins (superficial external pudendal vein, superficial epigastric vein, superficial circumflex iliac vein), and anterior and posterior accessory saphenous veins was recorded and classified on the basis of the origin of reflux...

BACKGROUND: It is generally difficult to place an iliac vein stent precisely at the iliocaval junction with venographic control or even with intravascular ultrasound guidance. Furthermore, mechanical properties of the Wallstent (Boston Scientific, Marlborough, Mass) can predispose precisely placed stents to distal displacement or stent collapse. Our center has thus advocated extending Wallstents 3 to 5 cm into the inferior vena cava to prevent complications of missed proximal lesions or stent migration...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess practice patterns of endovenous ablation therapy for the treatment of venous reflux disease among the vein specialist members of the American Venous Forum (AVF). METHODS: An online survey was conducted of AVF members designed to identify demographics, treatment practices, and clinical variables in the selection of vein ablation devices. RESULTS: The survey was distributed to 798 practicing physicians, of whom 129 (16%) responded...

OBJECTIVE: When assessing the common femoral and suprainguinal veins in patients with venous stasis, it is generally agreed that use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is mandatory. This widely held dogma is reinforced by the fact that extrinsic compression of the iliac veins does not reproduce images consistent with eccentric stenosis as one sees in the arterial system. In an attempt to identify a subgroup of patients where the use of IVUS could be averted, we analyzed and carefully evaluated the images of patients who had both standard contrast venograms and IVUS examinations...

OBJECTIVE: Endovascular recanalization is considered first-line therapy for chronic central venous occlusion (CVO). Unlike arteries, in which landmarks such as wall calcifications provide indirect guidance for endovascular navigation, sclerotic veins without known vascular branching patterns impose significant challenges. Therefore, safe wire access through such chronic lesions mostly relies on intuition and experience. Studies have shown that magnetic resonance venography (MRV) can be performed safely in these patients, and the boundaries of occluded veins may be visualized on specific MRV sequences...

OBJECTIVE: Percutaneous recanalization and stenting is currently the standard of care for symptomatic chronic total occlusions (CTOs) of the iliofemoral veins. CTO lesions involving the inferior vena cava (IVC) present a more complex patient subset. In this series we describe our single-center experience with endovascular recanalization of symptomatic occlusions of the IVC. METHODS: Patients were evaluated with duplex ultrasound imaging, venous function tests, and venography before intervention...

OBJECTIVE: Poor retrieval rates for retrievable inferior vena cava filters (R-IVCFs) have been reported throughout the literature, with poor follow-up a common cause. In 2009, we reported a retrieval rate of 18% despite an initial follow-up rate of 85%. Use of a registry has been shown to improve retrieval rates. As a quality improvement project, in May 2012, the vascular surgery fellowship implemented a reiterative registry to track R-IVCFs placed at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to improve retrieval rates...

OBJECTIVE: Some inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) complications only manifest after prolonged dwell time (IVCF fracture, inferior vena cava [IVC] occlusion, and IVC perforation). Incidence of these complications is often based on mathematical projections given the lack of long-term imaging follow-up. The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of long-term complications of IVCFs using ideal imaging, contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT). METHODS: From 2007 to 2009, 3303 IVCFs were placed across a large healthcare region...

OBJECTIVE: This study compared the efficacy and complication rates of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters for calf vein thrombosis (CVT) vs conservative treatment with or without anticoagulation. METHODS: Vascular laboratory studies of patients who had an isolated CVT (anterior and posterior tibialis, peroneal, soleal, and gastrocnemius veins) from April 2009 to January 2014 were retrospectively analyzed from a single institution. Of 647 patients with isolated CVT, 285 (44%) received an IVC filter, and 362 (56%) received medical treatment alone (38...

OBJECTIVE: We sought to determine the risk factors for subsequent bleeding and recurrent venous thromboembolism (VTE) events following isolated noncatheter-associated upper extremity deep venous thrombosis (non-CA-UEDVT) to better inform future treatment decisions for this group of patients. METHODS: The RIETE registry (Registro Informatizado de Enfermedad TromboEmbólica [Computerized Registry of Patients with Venous Thromboembolism]) is a prospective international registry of patients with objectively confirmed symptomatic VTE...

Himanshu Verma, Ramesh K Tripathi
Post-thrombotic syndrome secondary to iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis is a significant contributor to advanced chronic venous insufficiency. Iliac vein stenting is a standard procedure to treat iliocaval obstruction. In cases with obstruction extending across the groin, venous inflow for an iliac vein stent may be poor and compromise results of iliac vein stenting. Treatment options include extension of stents across the inguinal ligament that may have limitations in improving inflow only from only one vessel...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this review was to create an evidence summary of the available literature comparing saphenous vein ablation and concomitant phlebectomy vs ablation with staged phlebectomy. METHODS: A review of the literature for ambulatory patients treated for venous insufficiency with saphenous ablation and phlebectomy was conducted. A literature search was performed using MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, Google Scholar, and PubMed with the keywords phlebectomy, endovenous ablation, staged procedures, vein stripping, superficial venous disease, and powered phlebectomy...
