From IVUS to Embolization: Management Tips for Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
As awareness for pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS) increases, the optimal utility of imaging and catheter directed therapies for these conditions remains in question. Vascular experts, Dr. Michael Cumming and Dr. Mark Lessne, discuss the roles of IVUS and CT venography when diagnosing and treating PCS.
IVUS for Arterial and Venous Disease
Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a versatile device used for both arterial and venous applications. In episode 52 of the BackTable podcast, Dr. Michael Cumming and Dr. Mark Lessne discuss indications for IVUS, false positives to watch out for, and why IVUS is a valuable tool for diagnosing central venous pathology.

Retrievable inferior vena cava filters (rIVCFs) are increasingly left in place beyond their indicated usage largely due to poor clinical follow-up. A dedicated IVC filter service line or clinic can improve filter retrieval rates.
The purpose of this article is to present an imaging and data review of the dominant device-related factors that complicate RIVCF retrieval and to describe the relevant advanced retrieval techniques to manage these factors.
Varicoceles are relatively common clinical problem that are associated with pain, testicular atrophy, and reduced fertility rates. This article reviews the anatomy, indications, treatment options, and potential complications related to varicoceles.
A review of the current guidelines and expanding indications for IVC filter placement.
In this article, we will present our approach to the retrieval of Greenfield, TrapEase, and Simon Nitinol filters. For each device, we will provide a brief history of the device’s development and implementation into clinical practice; this will be followed by a description of our procedural approach, which we will illustrate with a case and images from our practice. We will alsodiscuss techniques described in the literature for the retrieval of VenaTech devices.
