Lower extremity deep venous thrombosis (DVT) may be complicated by pulmonary embolism, post-thrombotic syndrome, and phlegmasia cerulea dolens. Due to these complications, the American Venous Forum now recommends thrombus removal for large or symptomatic thrombus burden. The AngioJet Solent Proxy and Omni thrombectomy sets are indicated for use in iliofemoral and lower extremity veins with a diameter ≥3 mm. The device has quickly become a preferred device among the available mechanical thrombectomy options. The AngioJet system has been demonstrated as both efficacious and safe as a method of thrombectomy in lower extremity DVT. This chapter discusses two techniques to utilize the AngioJet device in iliofemoral DVT.
