Comparison between a dedicated venous stent and standard composite Wallstent-Z stent approach to iliofemoral venous stenting – Intermediate term outcomes.


Dedicated venous stents have not been utilized in the management of symptomatic chronic iliofemoral venous obstruction (CIVO) until recently. The Bard Venovo stent is one such stent noted to have increased chronic outward force and radial resistive force compared to the Wallstent. This study evaluates outcomes following the use of the Bard Venovo stent compared to a matched cohort of limbs that underwent stenting with the Wallstent-Z stent (composite) configuration.
