Recanalization techniques of chronic iliofemoral vein occlusions
This video resumes the steps of performing a recanalization and stenting of a post-thrombotic iliofemoral vein oclussion including phlebographic and IVUS assessment.
Key words: Venous stenting, venous recanalization, posthrombotic syndrome, iliofemoral occlusion, deep vein thombosis, IVUS
Asymptomatic carotid artery disease
Age: 72 years old
Comorbidity: Arterial hypertension, hypercholesterinemia, previous smoker
Previous operations: None
Vascular Imaging of the left internal carotid artery: Duplex ultrasound with peak systolic velocity (PSV)> 230 cm/sec
Ilio-femoral deep vein thrombosis
45 years old female patient presenting with painful swelling of the right limb during the last 24 hours. Wells score on admission was 4 points. The duplex ultrasound scanning revealed a femoropopliteal and iliac deep vein thrombosis. No other risk factors were present. No previous operations. No thrombophilia documented.
The Type II Endoleak
Age: 68 years old
Comorbidity: Arterial hypertension, active smoker
Underwent EVAR 2 years ago
DUS/CT A: Aneurysm sac growth > 7mm compared to last CT scan with evidence of type II Endoleak (Inferior mesenteric artery)

Choice of antiplatelet therapy around complex revascularisation
A 79-year-old diabetic male patient with no history of coronary disease is referred to you to undergo angioplasty for tissue loss on the tips of the hallux and second toe. He is taking Aspirin 75mg. From preoperative imaging he needs a 20cm SFA occlusion stopping before the adductor hiatus recanalizing as well as multilevel tibial disease which appears to be a combination of short occlusions and stenoses. The dorsal pedal is seen in the foot and is in continuity with the arch. The PT artery appears occluded through it’s whole length.
