BACKGROUND: Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a frequent complication of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) despite adequate treatment. Venous angioplasty and stent placement has been progressively used to restore and maintain venous patency in PTS patients. This study reports our single-center experience with the use of endovascular treatment for chronic post-thrombotic symptomatic ilio-femoral venous obstructive lesions. METHODS: A prospective mono-centric observational cohort study of PTS patients with chronic symptomatic ilio-femoral venous obstructive lesions referred for endovascular treatment was conducted from March 2012 to April 2016...

Prostate carcinomas are often associated with lymphedemas of the leg following surgical treatment. Lymphedema is treated using complete decongestive therapy (CDT) with manual lymph drainage and compressive bandaging or stockings. Lymphedema resulting from a distinct iliac lymph node metastasis is a rare condition. A 73-year-old patient with a diagnosed prostate carcinoma presented with distinct swelling in the right leg. Iliac and leg vein thrombosis could not be ruled out. An ultrasound image revealed a large lesion surrounding the right iliac arteries...

Persistent pain after iliac vein stenting is rare. Surgical removal of two oversized (20-mm) iliac vein stents was performed in a 36-year-old woman because of severe back pain of 2½ years' duration. Clamping or venotomy were not required for stent removal, which was done by extraction of each wire of the stent through small puncture wounds in the vein wall. Duplex scanning confirmed residual pseudointima obstructing the orifice of the right common iliac vein. The pseudointima was surgically removed. The patient recovered without complications, and her pain completely resolved...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic deep venous obstruction can cause a significant loss of quality of life, although it can be treated successfully by stenting. A clear referral pattern for additional imaging is warranted in patients with lower limb complaints. The aim of this study was to determine the value of clinically visible abdominal wall collateral veins in the diagnosis of a potentially treatable deep venous obstruction. METHODS: A total of 295 patients referred for evaluation at a tertiary venous clinic with a collateral vein on the abdominal wall or pubic bone, visible on physical examination, were retrospectively analyzed and compared with a randomly selected control group of 365 patients without such a collateral vein...

BACKGROUND: Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis may occur in patients with iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT), and its impact on thrombolysis outcomes is poorly defined. This study compared outcomes of patients undergoing thrombolysis for acute iliofemoral DVT with and without IVC involvement. METHODS: Patients who underwent thrombolysis for iliofemoral DVT between May 2007 and March 2014 were identified from a prospectively maintained database and divided into two groups: those with IVC involvement and those without...

The present study was aimed at assessing initial results of hybrid operations in obstructive lesions of the iliac-femoral veins in patients with post-thrombotic disease (PTD). Hybrid operations [open endovenectomy from the common femoral vein (CFV) with creation of an arteriovenous fistula + stenting of iliac veins] were performed carried out in a total of eleven patients with PTD. Of these, there were 7 men and 4 women aged from 34 to 52 years (mean age - 42.8±7 years). All patients had severe-degree chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)...

May-Thurner syndrome is the condition of the left common iliac vein being compressed between the right common iliac artery and the associated vertebral body. This condition has been linked to spontaneous episodes of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), especially in women aged 20-50, and it may contribute to the slightly higher tendency to develop left-sided (~56%) versus right-sided DVTs. A 50-year-old morbidly obese (BMI 42.7 kg/m(2)) female presented to the emergency room with acute left leg pain. Past medical history included asthma...

OBJECTIVE: Multiple vascular inflow reconstruction options exist for claudication, including aortofemoral bypass (AFB) and alternative inflow procedures (AIPs) such as femoral reconstruction with iliac stents, and femoral-femoral, iliofemoral, and axillofemoral bypass. Contemporary multi-institution comparison of these techniques is lacking. METHODS: The Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Project (VASQIP) national database (2005-2013) was used to compare AFB vs AIP in a propensity-matched analysis...

An arterioenteric fistula is a devastating and life-threatening condition that requires urgent treatment. Less-invasive endovascular treatment has emerged as an alternative to conventional open repair, but postoperative graft infection remains a major concern. We herein report a case of late stent graft infection after emergency endovascular repair of a secondary iliac artery-enteric fistula. The patient was a 63-year-old male who presented with a fever, who had undergone successful endovascular stent grafting for a secondary common iliac artery-enteric fistula 29 months prior...

Background Cockett and Thomas described and named Cockett's syndrome in 1965, commonly referred to as iliac vein compression syndrome (IVCS). It is often found as underlying cause in iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT). They described the syndrome mostly seen on the left side and predominantly in women during the second to the fourth decade of life. In this article, we present a patient with a Cockett's syndrome on the right side. Case presentation Our patient is a 52-year old female with edema of the right leg since 4 months...

The use of cardiovascular stents for rapid in vivo re-endothelialization is a promising strategy for reducing cardiovascular implantation or preventing local thrombus formation and restenosis. Surface-patterned intravascular endoprosthetic stents have been developed to prevent life-threatening complications. In this study, vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC)-biomimetic surface patterns were fabricated on 316L cardiovascular stents using a femtosecond laser and then implanted into the iliac artery of rabbit...

STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVE: To explore the underlying anatomy of MTS using CT and discuss its clinical significance for typing diagnosis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Because the anatomical position of the corpse cannot fully illustrate the actual clinical situation in vivo, the diversity of MTS has not been fully elucidated yet. METHODS: Retrospectively analysed the data of 69 patients with MTS. By CT showing, patients were categorized to simple MTS (sMTS, 22), lumbar degeneration-related MTS (dMTS, 33) and other causes MTS (oMTS, 14); meanwhile, a healthy control group were set...

BACKGROUND: Compression has long been the mainstay of treatment in chronic venous disease (CVD). The current treatment paradigm emphasizes compression as primary treatment, awarding saphenous ablation only an optional role. The advent of endovenous interventions, such as endovenous ablation (EVA) of the saphenous vein and iliac vein stenting, has dramatically expanded therapeutic options. The relative roles of the old and newer techniques are in a state of flux and need to be redefined...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic venous ulcer (CVU) is a potentially debilitating condition that remains the most common etiology for leg ulcers. The condition has significant associated costs and effect on patient quality of life. That truncal reflux can be worsened by iliac vein occlusive disease is well known. However, there has not been systematic investigation of venous duplex ultrasound (VDUS) criteria to correlate common femoral vein (CFV) reflux with iliac vein stenosis. We sought to correlate VDUS criteria for predicting iliac vein stenosis and to investigate venous outflow factors associated with CVU recurrence...

Descending iliofemoral thrombosis in children is a rare event. Anticoagulation therapy with low-molecular-weight-heparin is standard of care. However, patency cannot be achieved in all cases, increasing the risk for rethrombosis and postthrombotic syndrome. To reduce the risk of venous valve failure in adults, local catheter-directed thrombolysis is used to reopen vessels. Two adolescent girls (17 and 15 years old) presented with acute descending iliofemoral thrombosis of the left common iliac, external, and common femoral veins...

BACKGROUND: Feasibility of single-session mechanical thrombetomy, without thrombolytics, for the treatment of the subacute deep vein thrombosis (DVT) of the lower extremity remains poorly described. PURPOSE: To evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of single-session endovascular treatment of DVT of the lower extremity that is more than 10 days old. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2010 to December 2013, single-session endovascular treatment was performed in 21 limbs of 21 patients (8 men and 13 women) with DVT more than 10 days old at our hospital...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of venous ulcers is demanding for patients, as well as clinicians, and the investigation of underlying venous hypertension is the cornerstone of therapy. We propose that occult iliac vein stenosis should be ruled out by iliac vein interrogation (IVI) in patients with advanced venous stasis. METHODS: We conducted a systematic retrospective analysis of a consecutive series of patients who presented with CEAP (clinical, etiological, anatomical, and pathophysiological) 6 venous disease...

PURPOSES OF THE STUDY: To evaluate the benefit of stenting the iliac vein in patients with residual iliac vein stenosis treated with catheter-directed thrombolysis for acute iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis. PROCEDURES: In this randomized prospective study, patients with a first-time acute lower extremity deep venous thrombosis that had persisted <14 days were treated with catheter-directed thrombolysis. After catheter-directed thrombolysis, patients with >50% residual iliac vein stenosis were randomly divided into two groups: catheter-directed thrombolysis + Stent Group and catheter-directed thrombolysis Alone Group...

Duplicated inferior vena cava is a rare anomaly, and thrombosis in one or both segments is even less frequent. We present a case of deep venous thrombosis of the left lower limb involving the popliteal, femoral, and iliac veins as well as the left segment of the duplicated vena cava and nutcracker syndrome. After catheter-directed thrombolysis complemented by mechanical thrombolysis, the compromised veins had complete revascularization; the nutcracker syndrome was treated with stent placement, followed by the use of anticoagulants...
