PMID:  7362016     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The hemodynamic features of venous claudication are presented in a patient with chronic occlusion of the iliac vein. Exercise results in a marked venous volume overload, particularly in the thigh, which leads to pain. The syndrome develops in patients with isolated iliac vein occlusion and patent, competent veins distal to the inguinal ligament.
