A review of large studies where patients underwent stenting for symptomatic chronic iliofemoral venous obstruction (CIVO) and had validated clinical and/or quality of life metrics with a follow-up of at least 12 months was performed. Such studies were identified through searches of the MEDLINE and Embase databases in addition to a search of the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials using appropriate search terms. These studies demonstrated that venous stenting is a durable intervention that confers clinical and quality of life improvement in patients with symptomatic CIVO who have failed conservative therapy. While significant improvement is common, complete resolution is rare, and in such patients, consideration should be given to treatment of other concomitant diagnoses including deep venous reflux, lymphedema, and chronic compartment syndrome.
