J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech. 2021 Oct 22;7(4):768-771. doi: 10.1016/j.jvscit.2021.10.005. eCollection 2021 Dec.


May-Thurner syndrome commonly presents with left leg swelling. Right-sided venous compression syndromes are rare. We report a 49-year-old gentleman who presented with right lower extremity swelling after leg trauma. He was found to have right distal common iliac vein compression by the overlying right internal iliac artery. He was treated with an endovascular approach with balloon venoplasty and stenting. This is a unique presentation of May-Thurner syndrome variation affecting the right lower extremity with limited description in the literature.
