Gencheff NE, Schmidt DH, Jean WJ, et al. Utilization of the Wallstent for the treatment of innominate vein obstruction: a case report. Cathet Cardiovasc Diagn. 1994 Jun;32(2):182-6.
Debilitating obstruction of the large veins may occur from external compression, neointimal proliferation or thrombosis. Appropriate interventions are contingent upon the underlying etiology and the local vascular anatomy. A case of innominate vein obstruction is presented illustrating the available intravascular therapeutic options, with special emphasis placed on intravenous stenting.
