Klippel Trenaunay syndrome is usually managed conservatively with surgery reserved for patients with symptomatic but mild cosmetic deformity or persistent venous hypertension despite nonoperative measures. Deep venous reconstruction is necessary in a small group of patients who present with significant chronic venous insufficiency due to hypoplastic, absent, or occluded deep venous outflow. Most often, venous outflow occlusion results from inadequate or surgically removed superficial collateral veins or from complications of endovascular procedures. In this article, we review the English-language literature and the Mayo Clinic experience, and report on a patient with Klippel Trenaunay syndrome who developed symptomatic iliofemoral venous occlusion following iliac vein stenting, which was successfully treated with a crossover saphenofemoral vein (Palma) bypass.
