Abstract

May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) is a rare condition in which patients develop iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis owing to an anatomic variant in which the right common iliac artery overlies and compresses the left common iliac vein against the lumbar spine. Data regarding lower extremity trauma in patients with previously diagnosed MTS are rare. We discuss the operative approach for ankle trauma occurring 3 weeks after endovascular surgery for the treatment of MTS.

Level of Clinical Evidence: 4
