Endovascular treatment

  1. Stand-alone anticoagulant therapy fails to prevent Post thrombotic syndrome in a significant proportion of patients with acute proximal DVT,leading to significant disability, quality of life impairment, and socioeconomic costs Endovascular treatment
  2. Patients with iliofemoral DVT are at particularly high risk for Post thrombotic syndrome and late disability.
  3. Treatment strategies that feature early thrombus removal may prevent Post thrombotic syndrome
  4. CDT has significant potential toprevent Post thrombotic syndrome and offers distinct advantagescompared with surgical venousthrombectomy, systemic thrombolysis, and anticoagulation alone.
  5. Adjunctive CDT is likely to providefaster symptom relief than anticoagulationalone and does not increase the risk of symptomatic PE.
