Venous angioplasty with stenting of iliac veins is an important treatment option for patients suffering from post-thrombotic syndrome due to chronic venous obstruction. Interventional treatment of a chronically occluded vena cava, however, is challenging and often associated with failure. We describe a case of a chronic total occlusion of the entire inferior vena cava that was successfully recanalized using bidirectional wire access and a balloon puncture by a re-entry catheter to establish patency of the inferior vena cava.
