How do I know if I have MTS?
Many people do not know they have May-Thurner Syndrome Patients with intractable swelling of venous ulcerations of the left leg should be evaluated by an experienced physician.
What is the treatment for MTS?
MTS is treated by relieving the vein compression with a stent.
Angioplasty and stenting
Angioplasty and stenting of the iliac vein
is a minimally invasive treatment that widens the vein. The procedure inflates the vein in order to widen it and increase blood flow and then a stent – a small, mesh-like tube – is placed in the vein to keep it open. The stent stays in the vein permanently.
This treatment is effective in the treatment of MTS because the stent keeps the compressed iliac vein open and improving venous drainage from the left leg.
This procedure is performed in the USA Vein Center offices.
