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 endovascular techniques of catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT), pharmaco-mechanical thrombolysis and venous stenting are now increasingly used. This study aims to review the evidence for these endovascular techniques in the management of acute lower limb DVT, and their role in the reduction of complications such as PTS.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is an important cause of short-term mortality and long-term morbidity. Although acute DVT is often well managed, there is uncertainty in the management of chronic DVT which ...
There is a paucity of data on patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in upper extremities.
Hughes-Stovin syndrome (HSS), characterized by the combination of multiple pulmonary artery aneurysms and deep vein thrombosis, is a rare and an under-recognized clinical entity with less than 40 pub...
We present a series of kidney transplant dysfunction secondary to lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT). A 70-year-old man underwent living unrelated kidney transplantation and presented 2 mo...
Women present with pulmonary embolism (PE) more often than men, while the opposite is true for proximal deep vein thrombosis (DVT). We investigated whether sex-specific differences exist in the presen...
This is a prospective, multi-center single arm registry to assess the use of the OmniWave Endovascular System in subjects presenting with either lower or upper extremity acute (symptoms ha...
The objective of the EDVIGE study is to determine whether a negative single distal and proximal leg veins compression ultrasonography safely rules out the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis...
The purpose of this clinical research study is to assess efficacy and safety of 3 doses of apixaban 5 mg twice a day, 10 mg twice a day and 20 mg once daily versus conventional treatment w...
Evaluate real world patient outcomes after treatment of acute and non-acute lower extremity deep vein thrombosis (DVT) with the ClotTriever Thrombectomy System.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy (as measured by the rate of recurrent symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism [VTE] (i.e., Pulmonary thromboembolism [PE] and Dee...
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.
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.
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
A morpholine and thiophene derivative that functions as a FACTOR XA INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment and prevention of DEEP-VEIN THROMBOSIS and PULMONARY EMBOLISM. It is also used for the prevention of STROKE and systemic embolization in patients with non-valvular ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and for the prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients after an ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME.
The venous trunk of the upper limb; a continuation of the basilar and brachial veins running from the lower border of the teres major muscle to the outer border of the first rib where it becomes the subclavian vein.
