What is Deep Vein Disease?
Disorders of the deep venous system often include deep vein thrombosis and obstruction of the vein from scar tissue or compression. This includes conditions of DVT, May-Thurner syndrome and Non-thrombotic occlusions. Unfortunately, deep vein disease is commonly overlooked in less experienced vein clinics.
Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatments
Treatments for deep vein thrombosis depend on the severity of the deep vein disease. The most common treatment is anticoagulants, or blood thinners.
There are also newer treatments for acute DVT that can be performed if done early. A minimally-invasive treatment that is gaining popularity is mechanical pharmacolysis or thrombolysis, which is the use of special catheters to inject drugs to dissolve the blood clot.
If there is compression or narrowing of the vein, then angioplasty or stenting of the diseased segment is preferred. This is performed in cases such as May-Thurner syndrome, non-thrombotic iliac vein occlusions (NIVL) and post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS)
