Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe the endovascular treatment of an occlusion of the inferior vena cava (IVC) due to obliterative hepatocavopathy with renal and iliac vein thrombosis. A 34-year-old man with nephrotic syndrome and hepatic dysfunction presented to the hospital after a 3-month history of lower extremity swelling with an acute deterioration in his condition. Magnetic resonance venography diagnosed a massive IVC occlusion with thrombosis of the entire IVC, iliac veins, and renal vein. He was treated with thrombolysis, and a chronic occlusion of the infrahepatic IVC was discovered. After venous stenting of the IVC and iliac veins, he dramatically improved. After 24 months, he remains symptom-free with a patent IVC and iliac veins.
