  • Iliac vein stenting for chronic venous insufficiency TEXAS HEART INSTITUTE JOURNAL Mussa, F. F., Peden, E. K., Zhou, W., Lin, P. H., Lumsden, A. B., Bush, R. L. 2007; 34 (1): 60-66


    Chronic venous insufficiency has devastating sequelae in terms of patients' lifestyles and negative economic impact on society. Traditional surgical procedures have yielded variable patency results, and follow-up has not always been reported. This review summarizes the current applications, patency rates, stent selection, and complications of balloon angioplasty and stenting in the treatment of chronic venous outflow obstruction in the lower extremity. We conclude that endovenous stenting is the current method of choice in the treatment of chronic venous obstruction.
