GARCIA, Luis F; FRANCISCO, Arroyo; FRANCO, Carlos A  and  LECHTER, Abraham. Endovascular treatment in patients with iliocaval compression syndrome: experience in 17 cases. Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2006, vol.13, n.1, pp.23-30. ISSN 0120-5633.

Objective: to report our experience in the intravascular management in patients with iliocaval compression syndrome. Material and methods: 84 patients with suspicion of iliocaval compression were evaluated during a three years period. This diagnosis was confirmed by ascendant phlebography and iliocavography. 17 patients received endovascular treatment, anticoagulants and serial radiological follow-up. Results: from 17 patients with mean age of 43 years, 88% had a complete clinical recovery; it was partial in 6% and absent in 6%. Stent’s patency was 94.12% after 36 months. Conclusion: endovascular therapy shows excellent patency and low morbidity in the treatment of patients with iliocaval compression syndrome.

Keywords : cockett; iliocaval; iliocavography; endovascular; stent.
