Coexisting Innominate Vein Compression Syndrome and May-Thurner Syndrome

By Sheng-Heng Tsai, I-Chen Tsai, Chung-Chi Wang and Clayton Chi-Chang Chen


AbstractInnominate vein compression syndrome and May-Thurner syndrome (also called iliac vein compression syndrome) are venous compression syndromes caused by normal anatomic structures. Here, we present a case in which these two conditions were found in the same patient using multidetector row computed tomography. This case is significant for two reasons: (1) it is, to the best of our knowledge, the first case study in the literature to report coexisting innominate vein compression syndrome and May-Thurner syndrome; and (2) it shows that multidetector row computed tomography has powerful diagnostic ability for venous diseases
