Iliac Vein Compression

A Silent Menace

Iliac Vein Compression – also known as May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS) – occurs when the left iliac vein is compressed by the right iliac artery, increasing the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the left leg. In many cases, a patient is identified as having Iliac Vein Compression when they are discovered to have DVT.

Symptoms of Iliac Vein Compression can vary widely, from being completely silent to swelling, pain or tenderness in the leg, skin redness or discoloration, a feeling of increased warmth in the leg, or increased vein size.

 

Perhaps more importantly, Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome is usually responsible for varicose vein recurrence after EVLA treatments.

 

Our treatment goal with Iliac Vein Compression is to reduce symptoms, while treating for DVT.
