The stent length and the diameter were determined on the basis of the CT and cavography. The stent length was chosen according to the stenosis.
The cavography performed before stent placement revealed a partial obstruction of the SVC in 4/22 (18.2%, type I) and in 11/22 (50%, type II) of the patients.
Cavography enables assessment of the obstruction and visualisation of the collateral circulations.
