Secondary venous obstructions of the femoro-ilio-caval system can arise from a variety of etiologies including post-thrombotic syndrome, both benign and malignant tumors, retroperitoneal fibrosis, and blunt, penetrating or iatrogenic trauma. Patients with occlusive disease of the femoro-ilio-caval segment present with symptoms/signs determined by extent of compensation by collateral network. The clinical presentation may include orthostatic pain, lower extremity venous claudication, varicosity, swelling, skin changes (hyperpigmentation, eczema, dermatitis, lipodermatosclerosis) and ulceration(s) typically in the “gaiter” area. This article will focus on the treatments currently available and on the major adverse events and local complications that can occur.
