*  What You Need to Know About May-Thurner Syndrome
May-Thurner Syndrome, also known as iliac vein compression syndrome, describes a condition where pressure builds up in the left common iliac vein, a blood vessel located in the pelvic area
*  May-Thurner Syndrome & Clotting (DVT/PE) Risk
May-Thurner Syndrome occurs when the left iliac vein is compressed by the right iliac artery, which narrows the left iliac vein leading to leg pain and swelling and increases the possibility of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

*  Inferior Vena Cava Filters, May-Thurner Syndrome, and Vein Stents | Circulation
The potential benefit of a filter is clear: It is meant to catch moderate-sized or large clots and prevent them from traveling to the lung. Filters do not prevent new clots-leg or pelvic DVT or clots in and around the filter-from forming. There are potential downsides of having a filter in place. The most common complication from placing an IVC filter is a hematoma or bleeding at the catheter insertion site in the neck or groin. This is typically not a major problem because the hematoma resolves.. Probably the most important potential problem is that a large clot or multiple smaller clots can become trapped in the filter and make it harder for blood to travel from the legs to the heart. This may lead to further DVTs below the filter, sometimes involving both legs. In addition, a clot can form on the upper side of the filter and still lead to a PE. Thus, PEs can happen despite an IVC filter. Less common complications include small pieces of the metal frame of the filter breaking off; the filter ...

MRV or MR venogram, is a test that looks for narrowing or clot in the veins throughout the body. It is used most commonly in the brain, abdomen, and pelvis. In the brain, an unexplained headache and risk factors for clot formation, may prompt a search for clot in the major veins of the brain. In patients with swelling in the legs, MRV of the abdomen and pelvis can look for clot in the major veins draining the legs, abdomen and pelvis. It can also detect congenital abnormalities in the veins than can lead to leg swelling, such as May-Thurner syndrome. MRV can also evaluate for pelvic congestion syndrome, a condition causing pelvic pain in women that is associated with enlarged, varicose pelvic veins.. ...

*  "We need to find the optimal stent configuration for venous disease" - Vascular...
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 ...
*  Venous Strangulation as an Unusual Cause of MitraClip System Delivery Failure | JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions
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 Surgeon's 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 ...
*  Field Lilies: 2015
I don't think I've ever before wanted so badly to get Christmas behind me and to be starting a new year. I haven't written anything here about the leg discomfort I've been having, but I've been struggling with Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome (aka May Thurner Syndrome) since late summer. And that is following two surgeries my husband had earlier in the summer, which followed an attack of vertigo I had in the dentist's chair this past spring when I was having a tooth prepped for a crown, followed by oral surgery for an infection in an old root canal, followed by a new root canal for the tooth that had been prepped for a crown. Oh, and I almost forgot, one of our sons broke his hand in the late winter when he slipped getting out of his car and fell on the ice. And another son recently had a health concern that sent us to the ER with him on a Sunday afternoon (thankfully that ended up not being too terribly ...

The amount of radiation used during a venogram is considered minimal; therefore, the risk for radiation exposure is very low.. If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be pregnant, you should notify your physician. Radiation exposure during pregnancy may lead to birth defects.. Because contrast dye is used, there is a risk for allergic reaction to the dye. Patients who are allergic to or sensitive to medications, contrast dye, or iodine should notify their physician.. Patients with kidney failure or other kidney problems should notify their physician. In some cases, the contrast dye can cause kidney failure, especially if the person is taking Glucophage (a diabetic medication).. Notify your physician if you have a history of bleeding disorders or if you are taking any anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications, aspirin, or other medications that affect blood clotting.. For certain individuals, a venogram may be contraindicated. These include persons with a known allergy to contrast dye, ...
