Venous Stenting


 

Venous Stenting

Occasionally leg swelling may be related to narrowing/constriction of an upstream vein. In the pelvis, the iliac vein can sometimes be compressed or pinched by surrounding structures, such as the adjacent/overlying iliac artery. This condition is sometimes referred to as "venous outflow obstruction", and sometimes goes by the name "May-Thurner syndrome". In some circumstances, there may be an option for inserting a metallic stent(s) into the vein to relieve the area of constriction.
