Nutcracker syndrome and deep venous thrombosis in a patient with duplicated inferior vena cava.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord; 4(2): 231-5, 2016 Apr.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-26993872
Duplicated inferior vena cava is a rare anomaly, and thrombosis in one or both segments is even less frequent. We present a case of deep venous thrombosis of the left lower limb involving the popliteal, femoral, and iliac veins as well as the left segment of the duplicated vena cava and nutcracker syndrome. After catheter-directed thrombolysis complemented by mechanical thrombolysis, the compromised veins had complete revascularization; the nutcracker syndrome was treated with stent placement, followed by the use of anticoagulants. There was technical success and complete recovery of the patient.
