Relief of obstructive pelvic venous symptoms with endoluminal stenting. (1/271)

PURPOSE: To select patients for percutaneous transluminal stenting of chronic postthrombotic pelvic venous obstructions (CPPVO), we evaluated the clinical symptoms in a cohort of candidates and in a series of successfully treated patients. METHODS: The symptoms of 42 patients (39 women) with CPPVO (38 left iliac; average history, 18 years) were recorded, and the venous anatomy was studied by means of duplex scanning, subtraction venography, and computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Successfully stented patients were controlled by means of duplex scanning and assessment of symptoms. RESULTS: The typical symptoms of CPPVO were reported spontaneously by 24% of patients and uncovered by means of a targeted interview in an additional 47%. Of 42 patients, 15 had venous claudication, four had neurogenic claudication (caused by dilated veins in the spinal canal that arise from the collateral circulation), and 11 had both symptoms. Twelve patients had no specific symptoms. Placement of a stent was found to be technically feasible in 25 patients (60%), was attempted in 14 patients, and was primarily successful in 12 patients. One stent occluded within the first week. All other stents were fully patent after a mean of 15 months (range, 1 to 43 months). Satisfaction was high in the patients who had the typical symptoms, but low in those who lacked them. CONCLUSION: Venous claudication and neurogenic claudication caused by venous collaterals in the spinal canal are typical clinical features of CPPVO. We recommend searching for these symptoms, because recanalization by means of stenting is often feasible and rewarding.  (+info)

Signal-enhanced color Doppler sonography of deep venous thrombosis in the lower limbs and pelvis. (2/271)

Detection of Doppler signal tends to be more difficult in peripheral veins owing to low flow velocity. This can be caused by nonoccluding thrombosis, post-thrombotic wall changes, or a deep anatomic location of pelvic veins. The last-mentioned frequently is accompanied by interference by bowel gas. In addition, inappropriate insonation angles adversely affect the outcome of color-coded Doppler interrogation. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the effectiveness of signal-enhanced color Doppler sonography on peripheral veins in 31 patients clinically suspected of having deep vein thrombosis. As a result of diagnostic uncertainty, additional enhanced studies were performed on 43 venous segments. The enhancement led to a decrease in false-positive results (from four patients to one patient) and false-negative results (from four patients to two patients) compared to unenhanced studies. Evaluation of the deeply located pelvic veins profited the most through signal enhanced Doppler sonography.  (+info)

Unilateral iliac vein occlusion, caused by bladder enlargement, simulating deep venous thrombosis. (3/271)

A variety of conditions cause unilateral leg swelling and thus mimic deep venous thrombosis (DVT). A heretofore-underappreciated condition that may lead to unilateral iliac vein compression, simulating DVT, is massive enlargement of the bladder caused by urinary retention. A case that demonstrates this condition is described. Although this disorder has been reported only three times before, its occurrence should be recognized by clinicians in light of the overall aging of our society. In addition, this case highlights the need for careful and thorough evaluation of patients who have unilateral lower-extremity edema.  (+info)

Feasibility of three-dimensional intravascular ultrasonography: preliminary clinical studies. (5/271)

The aim of this study was to demonstrate the clinical utility of reconstructed three-dimensional intravascular ultrasonography using a voxel-based volume rendering technique. Three-dimensional reconstruction of intravascular ultrasonographic data was performed in 12 patients with various vascular abnormalities during interventional radiology procedures. A stepping motor device was used to pull either a 12.5 or a 20 MHz catheter-based transducer through the lumen of a variety of vessels at a rate of 1.5 mm/s. Images were downloaded to a Life Imaging System for three-dimensional reconstruction. The value of three-dimensional ultrasonographic imaging was evaluated in comparison to conventional intravascular ultrasonography. A variety of abnormalities were demonstrated in reconstructed three-dimensional ultrasound imaging, including arterial atheroma and plaque, aneurysm and pseudoaneurysm, aortic dissection and stenosis (May-Thurner syndrome). The vascular branches and accessory vessels, as well as their relationships to each other, were easily demonstrated on three-dimensional imaging by selecting an appropriate angle, plane, and section of the image. The dimensions and shapes of the vascular lumen were determined in the longitudinal view. Three-dimensional information proved useful for determining the distribution and type of plaque in vessels. Reconstructed three-dimensional imaging allows for global evaluation of the dissection entry site, extent of the flap, and the false lumen of a pseudoaneurysm. Intravascular three-dimensional ultrasonography provides information complementary to that obtained with two-dimensional imaging. It supplies information about spatial relationships of anatomic structures that cannot be evaluated using conventional imaging methods.  (+info)

May-Thurner syndrome in an adolescent: persistence despite operative management. (7/271)

We describe a patient with May-Thurner syndrome who underwent operative transection and transposition of the right common iliac artery without direct venous repair, because preoperative and intraoperative intravascular ultrasound scans were negative for "spurs" in the left common iliac vein. When symptoms and signs persisted, a postoperative magnetic resonance venogram (MRV) showed severe stenosis in the left common iliac vein. Progressive, but incomplete, clinical improvement occurred with conservative management.  (+info)

Detection of a large arteriovenous fistula between the internal lliac vessels by radionuclide angiography. (8/271)

A patient evaluated for heart failure was found by routine radionuclide angiography to have a large internal iliac arteriovenous fistula of presumed postoperative origin. The value of radionuclide angiography is described with a review of the literature on such unusual cases.  (+info)

Iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis is a medical emergency associated with pulmonary embolism, severe postthrombotic morbidity and increased rates of recurrence. We present 3 cases of iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis managed in a setting of limited resources. Results of 2-D Ultrasound scan which suggested proximal DVT was confirmed by Doppler ultrasound scan. Patients were all managed by systemic anticoagulation alone. In experienced hands, it is possible to diagnose iliofemoral DVT with 2-D Ultrasound scan and treatment with systemic anticoagulation alone still has a role. However recent studies have proved clearly the superiority of thrombectomy over systemic anticoagulation alone. There is a need to improve the infrastructure and expertise of clinicians managing these conditions in underdeveloped settings to enable them offer the best to their patients.

We illustrate the novel approach of right iliac vein stenting for the delivery of a MitraClip steerable sheath system (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, California) in a patient with a unique case of venous obstruction. An 85-year-old man with decompensated heart failure due to severe mitral regurgitation and Society for Thoracic Surgeons risk score of 24% was deemed at prohibitive risk for surgery and was referred for transcatheter mitral valve repair. An initial attempt to pass the 24-F MitraClip delivery system through the right iliac vein was unsuccessful (Figure 1, Online Video 1). Subsequent computed tomography venography demonstrated an unusual pattern of right common iliac to external iliac vein compression by right common iliac artery bifurcation as demonstrated by a computed tomography venogram obtained after the initial procedural attempt (Figures 2A to 2D). The vein appeared to be fixed posteriorly in the pelvis by the anterior arterial bifurcation, causing a stenosis and fixed tight ...

The VIVO clinical study is a prospective, non-randomised, multicentre study intended to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Zilver Vena venous stent in the treatment of symptomatic iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction.. A total of 243 patients with acute or chronic symptomatic iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction were enrolled in the VIVO Clinical Study, which has a one-year primary endpoint. The study is being conducted in 29 active sites throughout the US as well as one in Taiwan. A press release reports that Cook Medical recently completed a similar first-of-its-kind study in the European Union on the safety and performance of the Zilver Vena stent. Gerard OSullivan (Galway University Hospitals, Galway, Ireland) will present data from the VIVO-EU study on Friday at the 2016 VEITHsymposium (15-19 November, New ...

A stent designed for use in the venous anatomy needs to be very different from a stent designed for use in the arterial system, which is a high-pressure system. Veins are quite elastic and tend to clamp down on themselves, so Zilver Vena provides a combination of high radial force (which is needed to the keep the vessel open) and flexibility (which is needed to work within tortuous anatomy), he said.. Zilver Vena is approved for use in symptomatic venous outflow obstruction in the iliofemoral veins, a common complication of deep vein thrombosis and May-Thurner syndrome. Patients with venous thromboembolism do not have many options. They are currently treated with compression stockings, by elevating the leg or with different pharmaceutical agents which can have side-effects. There is a general paucity of clinical evidence when it comes to endovascular treatments in the venous system, and we hope to initiate and continue studies to build the evidence base in this arena, said Lyles.. Lyles made ...

The veins of the pelvis drain deoxygenated blood and return it to the heart. There are three major vessels involved in the venous drainage of the pelvis - the external iliac vein, internal iliac vein and common iliac vein (these correspond the major major pelvic arteries).
The US Food and Drug Administration has approved the Vici stent for use in treating iliofemoral venous obstructive disease, Boston Scientific announced today. This is the second approval this year for a dedicated venous stent for a disease that has typically been managed in the past with off-label device use. The Vici approval was supported by data from the 170-patient VIRTUS study. As reported by TCTMD earlier this year at ISET 2019, VIRTUS demonstrated a 12-month primary patency rate of 84%, exceeding the performance goal of 72.1% (P , 0.001). Additionally, the Venous Clinical Severity Score (VCSS) declined from 10 at baseline to 5.6 at 12 months, with only 27.3% of patients having a score of 8 or higher.. Vici joins the Venovo (Becton Dickinson) device, which received FDA approval for a similar indication less than 2 months ago based on favorable results from the VERNACULAR trial. As reported by TCTMD at VIVA 2018, VERNACULAR demonstrated a high rate of primary patency at 12 months (88.3%) ...

October 24, 2017-The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) announced the publication of a study showing that the results of endovascular treatment of iliocaval and infrainguinal postthrombotic venous obstruction do not appear to be adversely affected by the extension of iliac vein stents into the femoral venous system.. According to the SVS, venous stenting for symptomatic patients has increased significantly in this setting. Several large series have demonstrated safety, efficacy, and good durability of this technique in iliocaval obstruction. However, questions remain as to the outcomes with regard to etiology (ie, thrombotic versus nonthrombotic occlusion) and the extent of stenting (ie, extension below the inguinal ligament). Concern for the latter is raised as the mobility of the common femoral vein may result in stent fracture and thrombosis.. The study was published by Johnathon C. Rollo, MD, et al in Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Diseases (2017;5:789-799).. As summarized ...
Two-year findings from the VIRTUS trial of the VICI venous stent (Boston Scientific) showed a primary patency rate of 79.4%. As has been seen in other trials, primary patency was higher in non-thrombotic lesions (94.6%) as compared to post-thrombotic lesions (73.4%).

Mehraneh D Jafari, MD, Alessio Pigazzi, MD, PhD. University of California, Irvine. A 39-year-old male with a history of HIV presented with 2-week history of obstipation. A colonoscopy was consistent with benign sigmoid stricture for which he was taken to the operating room for a laparoscopic exploration and possible sigmoidectomy. Intra-operative findings were consistent with a sigmoid volvulus. A sigmoid colectomy was performed in a standard medial to lateral fashion. A thermal injury to the left external iliac vein occurred during dissection of the peritoneum over the left pelvic brim. Direct pressure was placed on bleeding vessel via Ray-Tec. The colon was mobilized, allowing for better visualization of the injury and the vessel. Once visualization was obtained, a 4 mm venous laceration was noted. Hemostasis was achieved via application of pressure followed by intracorporeal 4-0 vicryl sutures. The patient remained hemodynamically stable during the entire case with an EBL of 250cc. ...

Background: The role of catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) in treatment of acute proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is controversial and national rates of in-hospital mortality and acute complications in these patients are unknown.. Methods: We used the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) database from 2005 to 2009 to identify all patients admitted with a principal diagnosis of proximal or caval DVT. In these patients, we evaluated the trends in the utilization rates of CDT and in-hospital outcomes. We compared in-hospital outcomes between the matched groups treated with CDT plus anticoagulation (Group A - 10,730 patients) versus anticoagulation alone (Group B - 10,730). We used propensity scores and Elixhauser comorbidity risk index to match the two treatment groups.. Results: Among a total of 368,974 patients admitted with lower extremity proximal or caval DVT, 3.7% (13,542) underwent CDT. The national CDT utilization rates gradually increased from 2.3% in 2005 to 5.1% in 2009. The groups ...

January 26, 2018-Medtronic announced the initiation of its investigational device exemption (IDE) study that will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the companys Abre venous self-expanding stent system in patients with iliofemoral venous outflow obstruction.. According to the company, the multicenter, single-arm study intends to enroll 200 patients with deep venous disease at up to 35 sites throughout the United States and Europe. The primary efficacy endpoint will evaluate patency at 12 months, which is defined by freedom from occlusion and freedom from clinically driven target lesion revascularization. The primary safety endpoint will evaluate the incidence of composite major adverse events at 30 days after stenting of an obstruction in the iliofemoral venous segment.. The Abre stent is premounted on a 9-F delivery system and features a nitinol stent with a triaxial shaft design. The stent utilizes an open-cell design with three connection points between the cells that are intended to ...
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 Cocketts 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 Cocketts syndrome, 3 Palmas operations for chronic thrombosis, and one internal jugular vein interposition for segmentary stenosis ...
Results The study cohort comprised 56 patients. The stent covered the VOL in 92.9% of cases. Thirty-two cases with VOL coverage had evaluable angiograms immediately after stent placement. Among these, VOL filled normally in 75.0%, exhibited diminished caliber with normal transit time in 3.1%, filled sluggishly in 18.8%, and was occluded in 3.1%. Follow-up was assessed in patients with at least 3 months angiographic follow-up (46 patients, mean 7.2 months). Of these, normal filling was seen in 71.7%, diminished caliber in 26.1%, and sluggish filling in 2.2% of cases. Neither stent coverage of the VOL nor its patency immediately after stenting or at follow-up correlated with stent-adjacent stenosis. There were no neurological sequelae from coverage of the VOL or alteration of its drainage pattern. ...

Leg swelling , or edema, can be caused by a number of medical conditions, including problems with the heart, liver, and kidneys. Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) can also cause leg swelling. In fact, swelling is one of the signs of more advanced venous disease.. Veins drain the used blood from the body back to the heart. In order to fight gravity and keep the blood flowing from the feet up to the heart, veins are equipped with one-way valves. With CVD, some of those one-way valves become leaky. When this happens in the legs, blood will drain more slowly, which causes the legs to swell.. Figuring out the cause of a patients swelling can be difficult. Often, a patient will have more than one cause of the swelling. At McQuaid Vein Specialists, our vascular technologists will perform a detailed ultrasound study to look for diseased veins as a source of the swelling. If vein problems are found, treatment options will be discussed.. ...

The peritoneum along the right side of the rectosigmoid junction is incised lateral to the inferior mesenteric and superior hemorrhoidal vessels (Figure 6). This incision extends down to the pouch of Douglas. The right ureter is identified beneath the residual peritoneum, and its course over the iliac vessels is exposed with blunt gauze dissection. The proximal bowel is retracted anteriorly and laterally. Alternatively, the proximal division of the bowel and vascular pedicles can be completed allowing the proximal end of the specimen to be moved around to aid visualization (Figure 11). If the tumor is very large, this should be avoided at this point, as it commits one to an excision prior to complete mobilization of the tumor. The superior hypogastric nerves are visualized just below the iliac vessels and the ureters. The dissection proceeds behind the superior hemorrhoidal vessels toward the entrance of the presacral space behind the sacral promontory. Division of the retrosacral fascia or ...

A method for placing a stent assembly in a bifurcated vessel in an animal body, such as a human, includes inserting primary and secondary guidewires from a location external of the body through the primary vessel. The second guidewire is also inserted into the secondary or branch vessel beyond a bifurcation area. The primary and secondary guidewires are then inserted into a primary stent and catheter assembly such that the assembly can move along the guidewires into and through the primary vessel to the bifurcation area where the primary stent is expanded. While retaining the secondary guidewire in the vessels, the remainder of the catheter assembly and primary guidewire are removed. Then the secondary stent, mounted on a catheter, is passed through the primary vessel using the secondary guidewire as a guide, past the bifurcation area and into the secondary vessel. There, the secondary stent is expanded to form the bifurcated stent assembly in an efficient and practical manner.

CT is the pillar of noninvasive diagnosis of RPF, as it allows evaluation of RPF location, extent and effect on adjacent organs and vascular structures. The typical findings are a well-delimited but irregular soft-tissue mass that is isodense to the surrounding muscles and extends from infra-renal aorta to the iliac vessels, wrapping the great vessels but sparing their posterior aspect. The centre of the mass is generally at the level of the aortic bifurcation and it often envelops the IVC and the ureters (causing medial deviation of the latter). The degree of soft tissue enhancement after contrast administration correlates with the activity of the fibrotic process [1, 2 ...

May-Thurner syndrome, also known as iliac vein compression syndrome, is an anatomically variable condition that is characterized by left common iliac vein compression by the right common iliac artery and the lumbar vertebra. This chronic and pulsatile venous compression by the right common iliac artery can cause local intimal injury, inflammation, scarring, and fibrosis, leading to venous outflow obstruction and increased intraluminal pressure. This can cause several complications, such as venous insufficiency, venous claudication, deep vein thrombosis, and very rarely extraperitoneal hematoma due to spontaneous iliac vein rupture. In particular, in middle aged women, hormonal imbalance coupled with these mechanical and inflammatory factors can cause further weakening of the venous wall integrity and develop spontaneous and potentially lethal venous rupture. This paper reports an extremely rare case of a 58-year-old woman with May-Thurner syndrome with acute and extensive deep vein thrombosis of ...

This patient presented with extensive left lower limb DVT that extended into the pelvis. CT abdomen/pelvis demonstrated compression of the left common iliac vein by the overlying right common iliac artery, consistent with May-Thurner syndrome.. May-Thurner syndrome is deep venous thrombosis resulting from chronic compression of the left common iliac vein (CIV) against the lumbar vertebrae by the overlying right common iliac artery (CIA). Although both left and right CIVs lie deep to the right common iliac artery, the left CIV has a more transverse course and is predisposed to compression whereas the right CIV ascends more vertically and is therefore not similarly predisposed. First line treatment is with thrombolysis and stenting, which removes the clot and relieves the compression to prevent recurrence.. Credit: Dr Donna DSouza. ...

A 72-year-old man suffering from congestive heart failure, swelling of the lower limbs and hematuria was transferred from another hospital with a diagnosis of large aneurysms of the abdominal aorta and the left common iliac artery. Iliac arteriovenous fistula (AVF) was definitively diagnosed preoperatively by contrast-enhanced CT and angiogaphy. At operation, an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm of 8cm and left iliac arterial aneurysm of 12cm were identified. After proximal and distal aortic clamping, the aneurysm was entered and an AVF orifice of 1cm communicating with the left common iliac vein was disclosed at the right posterior wall of the left common iliac artery. Venous blood reflux was controlled by inserting an occlusive balloon catheter to the fistula and intraoperative shed blood was aspirated and returned by an autotransfusion system. The AVF was closed from inside the iliac aneurysm by three interrupted 3-0 monofilament mattress sutures with pledgets. The aneurysms were resected ...

Köksoy told ESVS delegates that, in terms of early clot removal, each modality has its advantages and disadvantages. He added, Pharmacomechanical thrombectomy refers to catheter-directed administration of a fibrinolytic drug directly into the venous thrombus with concomitant use of catheter-based devices to macerate the thrombus and speed thrombus removal. Pharmacomechanical thrombectomy can enable complete on-table removal of a thrombus in a single, one- to three-hour procedure, reducing the overall thrombolysis infusion time, dosage and length of stay.. He said that there have been observational studies but no randomised trials in this area. No single pharmacomechanical thrombectomy method is clearly superior to others. Catheter-directed thrombolysis with long lytic infusions is likely to be less efficient and less safe than pharmacomechanical thrombectomy and most endovascular surgeons or interventionalists prefer faster pharmacomechanical methods that use lower doses of tPA and ...
It could be a real long shot, but Ill mention it anyway. There is a condition called May-Thurner syndrome. It is when the right iliac artery compresses the left iliac vein against the spine. This causes the blood to congest in the left leg because it can not normally pass the compression on its way back to the heart. It dos not necessarily results in the pain at the compression site (if it does it gives a lower back pain), most often it causes pain or swelling or both in the left leg. If you have a compression like this, after a while your circulatory system is trying to develop alternative veins. They are called collateral veins. Most often there are transpelvis collaterals (horizontal ones from left to right in pelvis), but some patients can develop them near the spine or even inside it. Then it can give pressure on nerves and give numbness and tingling sensation in legs. Another typical symptom is ambulating pain, the pain moves around depending on where the pressure is high at the moment. ...

What have the results shown?. The goal was clearly not to try to show differences in patency rates or to suggest that any stent was better or worse than others, but was rather to distillate specific features and thereby help manufactures develop improved designs. All the stents have specific pros and cons. We looked at a number of factors-ease of deployment, positioning, whether the device straightens, how much it straightens, how strong is it, how much radial force it exerts, and whether the integrity of the stent might suffer.. Looking at the Vici stent, we could see it is a very strong stent, with a sufficient surface area, performing well in May-Thurner syndrome patients, with good stent integrity. When you put pressure on the vein you do not see indentation of the stent. This differs from the Zilver Vena device, which is weaker as it does not have a closed cell design. However, the Zilver Vena stent is very flexible, does not foreshorten and stent deployment is reliable. Ease of deployment ...

In the present study, several interesting and relevant results were found. Gender dimorphism was found to be one of the effects of housing rats in IVCs compared to CCs. In addition, housing male and female rats in IVCs was observed to increase water intake and decrease food intake. Furthermore, the internal cage temperature of IVCs was higher than that of CCs.. The lower food intake of male and female offspring housed in IVCs and absence of differences in body weight between the experimental groups indicates lower energy expenditure in IVCs. Living organisms continuously expend energy, and the rate varies with activity, ambient temperature, and many other factors 12. The lower energy expenditure can most likely be explained by the higher temperatures observed in IVCs, leading to lower food intake among the rats housed in these cages.. Water intake did not differ between the male offspring groups, whereas for female offspring, the water intake was higher in the IVC group than in the CC group ...

The veins that we treat with EVLT will stay closed with a success rate of 95 to 98%, long-term. If your leg pain and discomfort are caused by venous insufficiency, then EVLT will result in significant improvement in pain and discomfort in over 80% of patients. If your concern is that of leg swelling, the following is what we have observed: After EVLT, the pain and discomfort and the pressure associated with your swelling in the leg will improve in greater than 80% of the time. But the disappearance of swelling will depend on the nature of your swelling, such as the cause of your leg swelling above and beyond the refluxing veins (such as obesity, heart/liver/kidney conditions, etc.), the duration of your leg swelling, etc. In some patients, the appearance of swelling does not return to normal even though the pain and discomfort is alleviated. ...
Yesterdays CX Venous Workshop focused on innovation in deep venous technologies, including deep vein stenting, venous ultrasound and valve technologies. Describing it as a peer-to-peer learning opportunity, course director Ian Franklin (London, UK) told CX Daily News that the session had been efficient, productive and enjoyable.. Offering hands-on opportunities to learn about new technologies throughout the day, the session provided unique opportunities beyond teaching, which are not always available in highly-structured meetings, said Franklin, who praised the quality interactions he had witnessed throughout the day.. Course director, Stephen Black (London, UK), commended the opportunity to attend the venous plenary day in advance of the CX Venous Workshop.

Swelling in the legs (edema) is a very common condition that many people have. Understanding the cause of your swelling is key to optimal treatment.
Shorter travelers ( less than five five) and taller ones(over six one) seemed at greater risk and- perhaps surprisingly- so did younger folks (less than 30 years of age). So, it seemed best to not be too young, short or tall. Some speculations regarding vein compressions in the short and not enough room for the legs in the tall seemed plausible but why younger travelers. The investigators suggested that one of the many epidemiological traps for the unwary might be in play.This may be an example of the attrition of the susceptibles. Individuals who are susceptible to a given event are likely to experience it soon after the start of exposure.The younger travelers likely had not been doing long haul flights for very long while the older employees had and those with clotting tendencies may have been deselected-i.e. no longer traveling or perhaps even taking prophylactic measures ...

FIGURE 2B: Abnormal noninvasive physiologic flow studies. PVR tracings are mildly abnormal throughout on the right with loss of the dicrotic notch. Segmental pressures and ABIs are in the mild range. PVR tracings are moderately abnormal throughout on the left. Segmental pressures and ABIs are in the moderate range. This study suggests mild iliofemoral or femoral-popliteal disease on the right and moderate iliofemoral disease on the left; aortoiliac disease (left worse than right) is also possible. Note the significant drop in the bilateral ABIs following exercise.. In a majority of patients with PAD, noninvasive physiologic testing is often sufficient for the clinician to make an adequate assessment of PAD presence and severity and begin medical treatment accordingly. In some cases, further imaging is needed for more detailed information regarding disease localization and severity.
