Patients with iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis suffer the most severe postthrombotic morbidity. Techniques that effectively remove thrombus from the venous system eliminate venous obstruction and potentially preserve valvular function. This will likely reduce or avoid the postthrombotic syndrome and improve long-term quality of life. To evaluate whether catheter-directed thrombolysis is associated with improved quality of life compared with anticoagulation alone and whether outcome in the… CONTINUE READING
