The recent application of endovascular treatment techniques to venous pathologies has meant that new therapeutic solutions can be offered to patients suffering from post-thrombotic syndrome. This often-underestimated condition frequently complicates cases of deep vein thrombosis, whether treated or not, leading to a chronic and disabling set of clinical symptoms (oedema, claudication, pain, venous ulcers, etc.) due to the combination of the pathophysiological phenomena of obstructions and reflux. These clinical signs see only minimal improvement when managed with the classic medical treatment, venotonic agents, and venous compression. We report the cases of two patients suffering with chronic post-thrombotic venous obstruction of the lower limbs in whom endovascular treatment brought clear and long-lasting clinical improvement.
