    and treated conservatively, ongoing shortness of breath, ongoing severe spinal and biliateral leg claudication,
    limited physical performance since childhood

    PRESENT STATE
    Villata score: 6 points;
    Spiroergometry: limited oxygen uptake during exercise due to impaired venous return

    CT VENOGRAPHY

    - chronic total occlusion of perirenal inferior vena cava with descending DVT into both iliac and common femoral veins
    - acygos collaterals

    DUPLEX
    Preserved leg inflow veins

    PROCEDURAL STEPS
    1. General anaesthesia, ultrasound-guided access bilateral femoral veins (below occlusion) and possibly right jugular vein (10F)
    2. Passage of occlusion of vena cava and iliac veins stiff angled glidewire 0.035“, Astato 0.018“ CTO wire with 30 g tip load
    3. Lesion examination by selective venograpy two planes, intra-occlusion venography and provisional IVUS
    4. High pressure balloon angioplasty up to 20 mm in vena cava, up to 14 mm iliac veins
    5. Stenting of IVC with 20 mm Venovo stent (BARD) with high pressure postdilation up to 20 mm (ATLAS GOLD, BARD)
    6. Y-reconstruction of iliac confluens using Venovo (BARD) 14 mm kissing stents
    7. Kissing balloon postdilation of iliac confluens with 14 mm ATLAS GOLD balloons (BARD)
    8. Stent extension to both common femoral veins using Venovo 14 mm stents (BARD) with postdilation up to 14 mm high pressure
    9. Final venograms and assessment of peak flow velocity in both common femoral veins by Duplex sonography
