Abstract: This report describes the surgical management of three patients with an extended ilio-femoral deep venous thrombosis. In the first patient a residual occlusion of the common iliac vein was treated conservatively and this patient developed severe chronic venous insufficiency. In the second patient a residual (sub)occlusion of the common iliac vein was treated with a stent and this patient remained asymptomatic with two years follow-up. In the third patient no residual or underlying anatomical abnormality was found with a good result at one year. Venous thrombectomy still has a place in the treatment of deep venous thrombosis and the long term results may be improved by application of endovascular techniques.
