May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) leads to an increased incidence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Early thrombus removal decreases the post-thrombotic morbidities. Our aim was to better elucidate the relationship between MTS and venous patency after Catheter-directed thrombolysis CTD.

The Acute Venous Thrombosis: Thrombus Removal with Adjunctive Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis (ATTRACT) trial reported that pharmacomechanical catheter-directed thrombolysis (PCDT) did not reduce po...
Small randomized controlled studies and meta-analyses have shown that thrombolysis, especially catheter-directed thrombolysis, can reduce the incidence of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). However, the ...
Iliac vein compression syndrome (May-Thurner syndrome - MTS) is an anatomically variable clinical condition in which the left common iliac vein is compressed between the right common iliac artery and...
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is associated with significant complications, including the development of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). Traditional management is with oral anticoagulation, but the endov...
May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) patients with lifestyle-limiting symptoms undergo stenting of the iliac vein for relief of compressive disease. The impact of degree of stenosis on clinical symptoms and out...
May-Thurner syndrome is the result of compression of the left common iliac vein between the right common iliac artery and overlying vertebrae. In This Study , We will detect the role of c...

A compression of ILIAC VEIN that results in a decreased flow in the vein and in the left LOWER EXTREMITY due to a vascular malformation. It may result in left leg EDEMA, pain, iliofemoral DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS and POSTTHROMBOTIC SYNDROME. Compression of the left common ILIAC VEIN by the right common ILIAC ARTERY against the underlying fifth LUMBAR VERTEBRA is the typical underlying malformation.
A disorder with chronic or recurrent colonic symptoms without a clearcut etiology. This condition is characterized by chronic or recurrent ABDOMINAL PAIN, bloating, MUCUS in FECES, and an erratic disturbance of DEFECATION.
A hindrance to the passage of fluids through a CATHETER.
An autosomal dominant disorder showing decreased levels of plasma protein S antigen or activity, associated with venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. PROTEIN S is a vitamin K-dependent plasma protein that inhibits blood clotting by serving as a cofactor for activated PROTEIN C (also a vitamin K-dependent protein), and the clinical manifestations of its deficiency are virtually identical to those of protein C deficiency. Treatment with heparin for acute thrombotic processes is usually followed by maintenance administration of coumarin drugs for the prevention of recurrent thrombosis.

Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).
Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
