Recent Developments for the Treatment of Acute and Chronic Venous Outflow Obstruction
This webinar will focus on recent technical developments for treating endovascular patients with acute and chronic venous outflow obstruction. New data for dedicated venous stents are now available and will be summarized. Within acute deep vein thrombosis endovascular treatment, new thrombectomy devices are now available which give the opportunity to avoid long-term local lysis therapy.
