Iliac Compression Syndrome Treated with Stent Placement.
Iliac compression syndrome is usually diagnosed during the third and fourth decades of life when the patient has iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis. Catheter-directed thrombolytic therapy is an accepted method of treatment for iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis, which has been reported to afford greater success with clot dissolution than with system therapy. Although this method is not new, this is the first case, to our knowledge, reporting successful treatment of computerized tomographically demonstrated iliac compression syndrome with stent placement after lysis and insufficient response to balloon angioplasty.
