Eight patients were treated for ischemic venous thrombosis of the extremities. The patients were evaluated retrospectively concerning their history, clinical signs and symptoms, management and follow-up. Neoplastic disease and immobility were the major etiological factors. Once diagnosed, an urgent combined medical and surgical approach proved to be successful in all patients as far as restoration of blood flow to the limb was concerned.
