Abstract

Upper extremity deep venous thrombosis, previously thought to be a relatively innocuous disorder in comparison to lower extremity deep venous thrombosis, has recently begun to receive the attention it merits. Its optimal management remains controversial despite the development of several new techniques and devices which allow more rapid removal of thrombus and treatment of underlying venous stenotic disease. The following article provides a framework to discuss its treatment, with the emphasis on endovascular management.
