ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the abdominal ultrasonography for assessment of patency of the Inferior Vena Cava after clipping. Patency of the inferior vena cava (lVC) after clipping for thromboembolic disease is usually checked by X-ray contrast or radionuclide venography. Although very accurate, these methods are invasive and thence cannot be used routinely or repeatedly in an individual patient. If AU is used as the initial screening procedure for patency of the IVC after clipping, the demand for postoperative X-ray contrast or isotopic venography will decrease. Very accurate imaging of the extent of an IVC obstruction or of the collateral venous return is indeed rarely necessary to decide whether and which further therapy is needed.
