Approaches to Acute Iliofemoral Deep Vein Thrombosis: Medical and Endovascular Management

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Nearly half of all patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) go on to develop post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). This CME-certified, 30-minute touchpoint features an expert interventional radiologist, Dr. Kush Desai from Northwestern Medicine, and includes video commentary on key clinical trial data and patient selection for endovascular interventions to reduce the risk of PTS. Dr. Desai also addresses the impact and severity of PTS, and the role of interventions in improving patient quality of life.

Featured topic areas include:
• The burden of PTS
• Clinical trials that examine the use of catheter directed interventional methods for improving outcomes after DVT
• Procedural considerations: Device management
• How I do it case on a patient who presents with iliofemoral DVT
