Post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a complication which occurs after deep vein thrombosis in spite of optimal anticoagulation. The term ’post-thrombotic syndrome’ summarizes all clinical symptoms and skin lesions developing in the aftermath of deep vein thrombosis. In order to prevent PTS various therapeutic options exist, the choice is depending on the time lapse since the event of thrombosis. At the acute phase of pelvic vein thrombosis catheter-directed lysis has proved to be an efficient therapy. Starting from the acute phase up to the chronic phase compression therapy should be administered. In the chronic phase clinically relevant improvement of PTS can be achieved by recanalisation of the venous outflow tract in the pelvic axis by endovascular stenting. Surgery or endovenous thermal ablation of the insufficient superficial venous system are further and supplementary sensible treatment options.
