SVS: Compression may promote, but not cause, iliac DVT LEFT ILIAC VEIN COMPRESSION IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH INFRAINGUINAL DVT BUT IS ASSOCIATED WITH ILIAC VEIN INVOLVEMENT. Journal of Vascular Surgery: Venous and Lymphatic Disorders, November 2018.
CHICAGO, Illinois, November 2018 – A recent study of a large series of patients with iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis (DVT) from Nanchang University suggests that, in general, compression itself is not the precipitating factor in iliac DVT; rather, it is the promoter of iliac DVT should infra-inguinal thrombosis occur.
