The long-term results after venous thrombectomy combined with a temporary arteriovenous fistula were evaluated in 19 patients. Clinical status, isotope phlebography, venous occlusion plethysmography and foot volumetry were performed after a mean follow-up time of 38 months (range 13-75). The primary operation was successful in 17 of the 19 patients; the 2 remaining had chronic occlusions of their iliac veins. At the time of closure of the arteriovenous fistula, i.e. 3 months after thrombectomy, 14 patients had a patent iliac vein. At follow-up eight patients were considered to have a patent iliac vein, eight had a partial restitution and three had an occluded iliac vein. The group as a whole had no impaired venous emptying of the leg, but the small group of patients with occlusion at follow-up according to isotope phlebography seemed to have an impaired venous emptying. Foot volumetry showed only minor signs of valvular insufficiency, mainly in limbs with distal extension of the initial thrombus or only partial restitution of venous patency. A good long-term result can be expected after venous thrombectomy with a temporary arteriovenous fistula particularly in younger patients where the thrombosis is limited to the iliofemoral segment. This emphasizes the importance of early operation before distal extension of the thrombus occurs.
