Resumen

BOZA W, Camilo et al. Endovascular treatment of superior vena cava syndrome: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2001, vol.129, n.4, pp.421-426. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872001000400011.

The treatment of superior vena cava syndrome is usually oriented to the underlying cause, that can be too slow in emergency cases. We report a 49 years old woman with a multiple myeloma that was admitted due to a superior vena cava syndrome caused by a central venous catheter used for chemotherapy for 20 weeks. She was successfully treated with thrombolysis, angioplasty and stent placement. The patient died 7 months later due to the underlying disease. Long term catheters are the responsible for 20 to 30% of superior vena cava syndromes. Endovascular treatment of the syndrome is successful in 60 to 100% of cases with a symptomatic relapse in 4 to 45% of patients. (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 421-6)
