lilac Vein Thrombosis: A Case Report of Treatment with Inferior Vena Cava Filter, Urokinase and Vascular Stent


Thombolytic therapy and placement of vascular metallic stent can be used for the treatment of lilac venous stenosis and thrombosis, but these treatments increase the risk of pulmonary thromboembolism. Inferior vena cava filter was developed for the prevention of recurrent pulmonary thromboembolism due to lower extremity deep vein thrmobosis and has been regarded as relatively safe and effective treatment modality. We experienced good result of combined treatment of inferior vena filter, thrombolytic therapy and placement of right lilac venous metallic stent in a patient with severe stenosis and thrombosis at both common lilac veins.
