The common femoral vein (CFV) and iliac veins compose the common channel for venous drainage of the lower extremity. Occlusive venous thrombosis of the CFV and iliac veins is associated with severe post-thrombotic syndrome and in some cases with nonhealing vein ulcers. After percutaneous intervention, relative obstruction of the CFV can persist, leading to incomplete drainage of the femoral and profunda femoris venous systems, thereby mitigating the benefit of iliac vein recanalization and risking rethrombosis; associated restenosis intrastent could occur, resulting in a great challenge for endovascular management.

Synthetic marijuana use has been reported in the last years as a possible causative factor of different cardiovascular events, including myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, intracranial bleeding, and cerebral vasospasm. One case of aortic thrombosis was also reported, but that was in a patient using cocaine and synthetic marijuana together. A case of lower limb thromboembolism and synthetic marijuana use has not been reported to date. Intoxication, material impurity, blood vessel reactivity, and chemical interaction with other drugs have been proposed as possible mechanisms of these events.

The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of aspiration mechanical thrombectomy of massive or submassive pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT), in a single session, in patients with contraindications to thrombolysis.

National Kidney Foundation Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative clinical practice guidelines recommend native arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) as the best hemodialysis access. Stenosis and thrombosis caused by stenosis are the most frequent complications of vascular access for hemodialysis, Surgeons and interventional radiologists have developed valuable tools to cope with access stenosis and occlusion. However, the main reason for type I stenosis (anastomotic venous stenosis) remains an inadvertent back wall stitch.

Anticoagulant therapy remains the prevalent treatment of venous thromboembolism. In the new era of percutaneous endovenous intervention, there is a progressive rise in the use of percutaneous endoluminal clot dissolution techniques as catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) and mechanical aspiration thrombectomy (MAT) because of established short-term benefits.

The objective of this study was to show that a stenotic lesion or occlusion may remain after open thrombectomy or endovascular thrombolysis. Hybrid treatment is applied to eliminate these causes. In our experience obtained at the Central Military Hospital, Mexico City, a hospital of the highest level in the Mexican armed forces with>700 beds, we have found a great discrepancy in what has been published around the world concerning permeability after removal of thrombus of the iliocaval junction by open or percutaneous procedures.

Venous thromboembolism represents one of the most common diseases and is a significant source of morbidity and mortality. Effective management requires early detection and treatment. Venous ultrasound is the most widely used imaging study for the diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Evidence-based practice suggests that specific management depends on the anatomic location of the thrombus. For this reason, early identification of anatomic location of the thrombus (iliofemoral [IF], femoropopliteal [FP], or calf) can expedite appropriate investigation and treatment.
