May-Thurner Syndrome is a result of the right iliac artery compressing the left iliac vein, thus increasing the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Treatment focuses on addressing clots that have already formed and then preventing new ones from forming and relieving the obstruction to venous blood flow.
Minimally Invasive Vascular are experts in diagnosing May-Thurner Syndrome and DVT. If you have symptoms, please give us a call.
Many people do not realize they have May-Thurner Syndrome until they are diagnosed with DVT as it does not typically present with any symptoms. Most people seek treatment once they notice symptoms of DVT, which include:
- Pelvic pain or discomfort
- Single or bilateral leg pain, heaviness or swelling
- Abnormal enlarged and tender veins (abdominal region, pelvic, thigh and/or buttock)
- Generalized abdominal discomfort
- Changes in skin color
- Skin that feels warm to the touch
- Diagnosis with on-site Duplex Ultrasound
- Intra Vascular Ultra Sound (IVUS)
- Treatment with Venous Angioplasty and Stent Placement
