Causes of May-Thurner Syndrome
Although rare, MTS is typically found in mother's during or after child birth that can cause pain & swelling.
When the right iliac artery crosses over the top of the left iliac vein, blood flow is restricted to the lower extremities which can cause pain, swelling, or even a DVT.
Symptoms of May-Thurner Syndrome
As MTS progresses, symptoms will begin to appear such as pain & swelling in the legs, and even varicose veins.
Commonly, at risk individuals will experience pelvis pain, lower abdominal pain, hemorrhoids, leg swelling, and worsening pain throughout the day and night.
