    A 23-year-old woman with a history of DVT presents with complaints of venous claudication. Duplex ultrasonography and magnetic resonance venography both show a post-thrombotic left common iliac vein. Pressures in the dorsal foot vein and common femoral vein of both limbs are measured. What statement below is true?
    • A. 

      In the supine position, both pressures in the left limb are circa 25% higher than in the right limb.

    • B. 

      In erect position, pressure in the dorsal foot veins is higher than the contralateral limb.

    • C. 

      Dorsal foot vein pressure of the left limb is a good parameter in identifying iliofemoral deep venous obstruction in this patient.

    • D. 

      During walking, pressure in the common femoral vein of the left limb increases considerably.

  • 18. 
    A 37 year-old woman presents complaining of chronic left lower extremity pain and edema. There is no reported history of deep vein thrombosis. She responds to a questionnaire that she experiences chronic pelvic pain and dyspareunia which is severe enough that she limits the frequency of intercourse. Physical exam reveals only a few small varices in the lower extremities. What is the most likely cause of the symptoms?
    • A. 

      Ovarian vein reflux

    • B. 

      Internal iliac vein reflux

    • C. 

      Iliac vein compression

    • D. 

      Iliac vein thrombosis

  • 19. 
    What percentage of patients have symptom resolution after IVC recanalization?
    • A. 

      10%

    • B. 

      20%

    • C. 

      30%

    • D. 

      50%

    • E. 

      80%

  • 20. 
    How does iliocaval venous obstruction affect microvascular functions?
    • A. 

      Venous obstruction causes reduced response to vasodilators

    • B. 

      Venous obstruction is associated with increased response to vasodilatation

    • C. 

      Endothelial-dependent vasodilatation is normal limits in venous obstruction

    • D. 

      Endothelial independent vasodilation is well preserved in patients with venous obstruction

  • 21. 
    A 69 year old man who had been diagnosed DVT in the past, has a skin pigmentation and an ulcer on his left lower limb. He reports a heaviness and a swelling on his left leg. Which of the following would be the most useful initial diagnostic study?

      Angiogram

    • B. 

      Venogram

    • C. 

      Duplex ultrasound

    • D. 

      CT

  • 22. 
    A 35 year old woman presents with isolated left lower extremity DVT. MRV suggests external compression of the left common iliac vein. What is the best way of evaluating the severity and morphology of this suspected lesion?
    • A. 

      Duplex ultrasonography

    • B. 

      Intravascular ultrasound

    • C. 

      Clinical examination
