Abstract

Iliofemoral Deep Vein Thrombosis (IF-DVT) is different from other types of lower extremity DVT because it has a much higher morbidity and causes more long-term damage. Early treatment with removal of thrombus and restoration of vessel patency gives symptomatic relief and reduces these complications. In this article, we present three cases of iliofemoral DVT treated successfully with pharmaco-mechanical thrombolysis using a variety of devices currently available. We demonstrate pre and post procedural imaging findings and discuss the current interventional radiological techniques and devices available for the treatment of iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis.
