Management of Deep Venous Thrombosis has dramatically changed with implication of endovascular techniques. Mechanical thrombectomy and Catheter directed thrombolysis have become the treatment of choice for proximal (femoro-iliac) disease giving excellent long lasting results. Anticoagulation remains crucial treatment for distal disease and even patients post successful proximal recanalizations require long term anticoagulation afterwards.
