Deep vein obstruction associated with the lower limbs is common. N. LABROPOULOS and A. JAVVAJI (USA), discuss overcoming the diagnostic challenges in deep venous obstruction while addressing the integration of morphological and hemodynamic testing in clinical practice.

Over the past 15 years, interventional therapies targeting early thrombus removal have evolved as a potentially better alternative for good-risk patients with iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis, aiming to decrease postthrombotic syndrome rates or severity and improve quality of life. E. AVGERINOS (Greece) and H. JALAIE (Germany) summarize current evidence, novel technologies, and the technical approach to the management of iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis.

K. DESAI (USA) provides an up-to-date review on the management of chronic deep venous obstructive disease, including the epidemiology, the clinical course, and the endovascular management of upper- and lower-extremity venous obstructive disease.

Venous stenting has rapidly advanced over the last 10 years as the emergence of dedicated venous stents and advancement in thrombectomy devices has renewed interest in this field. S. BLACK (UK) presents the advancements in venous stenting while pointing out some of the problems that have arisen, as well as assesses the potential future developments that may be needed.
