Abstract

Percutaneous translumbar access was used for angioplasty and stent deployment in the suprarenal inferior vena cava (IVC). The patient, who was undergoing hemodialysis via a translumbar tunneled hemodialysis catheter, was found to have near-total occlusion of the suprarenal IVC. Following treatment, subsequent improvement of flow was present in the IVC and hemodialysis catheter.
