Abstract

Background Anticoagulant treatment is recently being replaced by more aggressive endovascular modalities in the management of acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT). These techniques have been promoted to improve thrombus removal, prolong venous patency, prevent venous insufficiency, and reduce post thrombotic syndrome. The aim of the present study is to overview the short-term results of percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy (PMT) for acute DVT.
