Abstract

Venous ulcers can be a chronic debilitating condition with a high rate of recurrence. Herein, we describe a case of a patient who successfully underwent an arterial bypass for rest pain but returned with lower extremity swelling and venous ulcers. Venography demonstrated a focal common femoral vein stenosis due to scarring from the surgical exposure. This was treated with endovenous stenting and resulted in resolution of the swelling and ulceration.
