Abstract

Critical deep venous thrombosis and occlusion constitutes a small percentage of patients with venous disease. However, these patients exhibit severe symptomatology including pain and extensive edema that may progress to limb- or life-threatening complications such as phlegmasia cerulea dolens and superior vena cava syndrome. This paper reviews the different multimodal percutaneous interventions currently available for the treatment of complex critical venous thrombotic and occlusive disease.
