Stephan Moll, MD writes… An article for patients discussing (a) IVC filters, (b) narrowing of the main left pelvic vein (May-Thurner syndrome) and (c) pelvic venous stents has just been published (http://circ.ahajournals.org/content/133/6/e383.full.pdf).  Color images of anatomy, filters and stents are included as visual aids.  The article may be helpful as handout material for patients in clinic.
