Venous Stenting

Venous stenting is a treatment procedure that can help patients who have certain types of blockage in one or more veins. A venous stent is a mesh tube made of metal that is inserted into a blocked or narrowed vein and expands against the vein wall to keep the vein open and allow blood to flow through it. In most cases, venous stents are placed using a minimally invasive “needle access” technique, which means that only a tiny incision (cut) is needed. Minimally invasive procedures reduce recovery time and risk to the patient compared to open surgery.
