Abdominal vascular syndromes are rare diseases. Although such syndromes vary widely in terms of symptoms and etiologies, certain imaging findings are characteristic. Depending on their etiology, they can be categorized as congenital-including blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome, Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome, and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome)-or compressive-including "nutcracker" syndrome, median arcuate ligament syndrome, Cockett syndrome (also known as May-Thurner syndrome), and superior mesenteric artery syndrome...

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...

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) also termed iliocaval compression or Cockett-Thomas syndrome is a common, although rarely diagnosed, condition in which the patient has an anatomical variant wherein the right common iliac artery overlies and compresses the left common iliac vein against the fifth lumbar spine resulting in increased risk of iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis. This variant has been shown to be present in over 23% of the population but most go undetected. We present a patient with MTS who developed high output cardiac failure due to an iatrogenic iliac fistula...

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) as an advanced stage of chronic venous disease is a common problem that occurs in approximately 1-5 % of the adult population. CVI has either a nonthrombotic (primary) or postthrombotic (secondary) cause involving reflux, obstruction, or a combination of both. The role of venous obstruction is increasingly recognized as a major cause of CVI, with obstructive lesions in the iliocaval segment being markedly more relevant than lesions at the levels of the crural and femoral veins...

Spontaneous rupture of the external iliac vein associated with a May-Thurner syndrome is infrequent, particularly in men. We report a case of previously healthy 73-year-old man with a left iliac vein thrombosis, who presented a large lower left abdominal hematoma of sudden-unset. Emergent laparotomy revealed a 3-cm longitudinal tear in the left external iliac vein, which was repaired primarily. Patient's recovery was uneventful. Possible etiological factors have been identified as venous hypertension due to iliac vein thrombosis associated with Cockett syndrome, as well as inflammatory venous wall...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the effect of direct multi-slice computed tomography venography (MSCTV) on Cockett's syndrome. METHODS: The imaging features of Cockett's syndrome diagnosed by direct MSCTV were retrospectively analyzed. The iliac vein compression tube segments were reconstructed axially. The ratio of the diameter of the lumen of pressure sections was calculated, and the boundary value was 1:3. According to the deep vein thrombosis, these data were divided into I-III types, the various therapeutic schemes were worked out, and the therapeutic effects were evaluated by the difference in diamete of lower limb before and after the treatment and 6-month follow-up...

Iliac vein compression syndrome (also known as May-Thurner syndrome or Cockett's syndrome) is a rare clinical entity in which the left common iliac vein is compressed when it passes between the right common iliac artery and the spine. The sustained compression and trauma caused by the pulsatile force of the artery on the vein damage the intima and lead to the formation of membranes or bands in the vascular lumen that hinder or obstruct the flow of blood in the vein, favoring thrombus formation. The current treatment strategy of choice is endovascular vein patch angioplasty and stenting with the aim of improving the caliber of the lumen and enabling normal venous drainage...

Two myths or dogmas have influenced the therapeutic proceeding of phlebological surgeons in the second half of the 20th century, and both did not stopped to wield their influence up to the present time. The first one is the Cockett's theory of the incompetent calf perforators (blow-out syndrome), the second one is the assertion that femoral vein incompetence invariably causes the most serious stage of chronic venous insufficiency. The incorrectness of the theory of incompetent calf perforators was documented by venous pressure measurements, including direct pressure and electromagnetic flow measurements in the incompetent calf perforators themselves, as well as by plethysmographic results after surgical procedures eliminating the saphenous reflux...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the surgical treatment of Cockett's syndrome in patients with deep vein thrombosis of lower extremity (DVT). METHODS: Ninety-five patients were diagnosed as Cockett's syndrome among 160 patients with DVT who received surgeries in our hospital from February 1991 to September 2005. Among these 95 patients, pathological changes included left common iliac vein (LCIV) occlusion (n = 20), > 50% stenosis of the LCIV (n = 53), < 50% stenosis (n = 22)...

PURPOSE: Nonthrombotic iliac vein lesions (NIVL), such as webs and spurs described by May and Thurner, are commonly found in the asymptomatic general population. However, the clinical syndrome, variously known as May-Thurner syndrome, Cockett syndrome, or iliac vein compression syndrome, is thought to be a relatively rare contributor of chronic venous disease (CVD), predominantly affecting the left lower extremity of young women. The present study describes the much broader disease profile that has emerged with the use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) scanning for diagnosis and analyzes stent placement outcome in two specific NIVL subsets that may offer clues to their pathogenic role...

We present a retrospective study of eight cases of vulvar bilharziasis who attended our institution for dermatological visit from 1998 to 2001. The mean age was 11 years old (range: 7 to 13). The clinical examination found wart like or ulcerated nodules, papules and/or diffuse infiltration. All the lesions were located on the left side of the vulvae (labium) and/or the groin. S. haematobium was the only causative agent identified in all specimens. The exclusive left side location of the lesions reported here has never been mentioned in the previous studies...

Ovine hereditary chondrodysplasia, or spider lamb syndrome (SLS), is a genetic disorder that is characterized by severe skeletal abnormalities and has resulted in substantial economic losses for sheep producers. Here we demonstrate that a non-synonymous T>A transversion in the highly conserved tyrosine kinase II domain of a positional candidate gene, fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3), is responsible for SLS. We also demonstrate that the mutant FGFR3 allele has an additive effect on long-bone length, calling into question the long-standing belief that SLS is inherited as a strict monogenic, Mendelian recessive trait...

Lower extremity ulcerations that result from venous hypertension are a significant cause of disability in Western nations. Venous ulcers, highly related to lower extremity venous valvular incompetence and post-thrombotic syndrome, demonstrate a protracted course of healing with a high recurrence rate when managed conservatively. Effective treatment includes correcting the elevated lower extremity venous pressure using non-invasive (compression therapy) or invasive modalities (removal or correction of incompetent venous segments, most commonly the greater saphenous vein)...

METHODS: A series of 9 patients of a mean age of 48 years, operated on for compression of the ilio-femoral venous axis is reported. The cause of obstruction was external compression in 3 cases, a retroperitoneal sarcoma in 1 case, and an infrarenal aortic aneurysm in 2. Two patients presented with a Cockett's syndrome, 3 with a chronic ilio-femoral thrombosis, and one with a post-traumatic segmentary stenosis. Treatment consisted in a resection/Dacron grafting of 2 infrarenal aortic aneurysms, one femoro-caval bypass graft, 2 transpositions of the right common iliac artery in the left hypogastric artery for Cockett's syndrome, 3 Palma's operations for chronic thrombosis, and one internal jugular vein interposition for segmentary stenosis...

Predisposing clinical features in pregnant women are poorly evaluated in the literature. Several factors are undeniable, for example extrinsic compression of the iliac vein (Cockett syndrome), post phlebitis disease, varicose vein disease, and, for most patients, unquantifiable risk factors. Careful assessment of the overall sensitivity to venous thrombosis, on the basis of history taking (patient and family), will allow better assessment of the predisposition to thromboembolism.

The case history reported concerns a female patient aged 42 years for whom the clinical picture was that of a blue phlebitis (phlegmatia caerulea dolens), associated with a state of shock evoking a severe pulmonary embolus. The absence of echocardiographic dilatation of the right cavities, and the appearance of a left iliac fossa mass, steered the diagnosis towards internal haemorrhage. Emergency laparotomy allowed diagnosis and treatment of a so-called spontaneous rupture of the left iliac vein, a rare condition for which 20 cases have been reported in the literature...

Isolated left lower extremity swelling secondary to left iliac vein compression was first described by McMurrich in 1908, and defined anatomically by May and Thurner in 1957 and clinically by Cockett and Thomas in 1965. The left iliac vein is usually located posterior to the right iliac artery and can be compressed between the artery and the fifth lumbar vertebrae. Symptoms include left lower extremity edema, pain, varicosities, venous stasis changes, and deep venous thrombosis. Evaluation of these patients historically included a venous duplex scan to rule out deep venous thrombosis and an abdominal computed tomography scan to rule out pelvic mass...

Compression of the left common iliac vein by the right common iliac artery has been well described (Cockett's syndrome). The authors describe a case report of compression of the right common iliac vein by the right internal iliac artery. The patient presented with ipsilateral lower limb oedema. Venography showed smooth extrinsic compression of the right common iliac vein. The CT scan was initially interpreted as showing no extrinsic mass or obvious compressing lesion and lymphography was normal. It was the duplex scan which showed the bifurcation of the right common iliac artery crossing the right common iliac vein and causing significant extrinsic compression...
