Post-thrombotic Syndrome of the Lower Extremity


In a healthy individual, some 90% of the venous blood is transported through the deep venous system. After a deep venous thrombosis, this venous return is impaired up to 80%-85% as a result of valve destruction and irregular recanalization. The impedance is progressive in character. Many surgical procedures have been tried in the past. However, upon critical examination, only a few can be said to have withstood the test of time.
