abstract

  • Thrombus debulking or removal with percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy devices may reduce the amount or duration of thrombolytic therapy required, making treatment of venous thoracic outlet syndrome safer. Moreover, patients with recurrent thrombosis after thoracic outlet decompression may be safely treated with percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy, even when thrombolytic therapy is contraindicated.
