OBJECTIVES The purpose of this research was to investigate the causes and symptoms of superior vena cava (SVC) obstruction or occlusion and report on the long-term results of transcatheter therapy. BACKGROUND Information on transcatheter therapy for SVC obstruction is limited. METHODS Superior vena cava catheterization interventions between August 1984 and April 2006 were reviewed. Patients were divided into 2 subgroups depending on whether or not they had previously undergone congenital… CONTINUE READING
