Endovascular management of KILT syndrome and COVID-19-related extensive deep vein thrombosis in a pregnant patient: A case report.

Publication date: Jun 01, 2024

We report on a 20-year-old pregnant woman who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 and was diagnosed with KILT syndrome, a rare condition that increases the risk of thrombotic events. The patient showed signs of deep vein thrombosis that extended from the bilateral iliac vein to the inferior vena cava (IVC), which was treated with placement of an IVC filter and endovascular thromboaspiration/thrombolysis. The IVC was successfully recanalized; however, during follow-up, thrombotic restenosis occurred at the filter level, requiring filter removal. This case highlights the potential benefits of endovascular thromboaspiration/thrombolysis and IVC filter placement in patients with KILT syndrome presenting with acute thrombotic events.
