Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is the most common chronic complication of deep vein thrombosis. Recent studies suggested that iliac stenting in chronic obstructive venous disease is safe and effective. However, systematic reviews focusing on mid-term efficacy of iliac stenting in post-thrombotic syndrome are lacking. This systematic review aimed to analyse mid-term stent patency rates and clinical outcomes of iliac stenting in post-thrombotic syndrome.
