Percutaneously Inserted AngioVac Suction Thrombectomy for the Treatment of Filter-Related Iliocaval Thrombosis

Tuesday 03/03/15 | 830 reads

ABSTRACT: In the setting of acute iliocaval thrombosis due to reversible causes, thrombus removal is preferred by many in the management of inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis as it is thought likely to minimize the long-term complications of chronic venous insufficiency and post-thrombotic syndrome. When catheter-directed thrombolysis is not a viable or effective option, the treatment options are limited. continue reading
