Chronic venous disorders (CVD) have a significant social and economic cost, impacting an estimated 50% of the population, and consuming an estimated 2-3% of healthcare budgets.1

It is well understood in the physician community that percutaneous stenting of the iliofemoral venous outflow can be performed with low morbidity, low mortality, long-term high patency rate, and low rate of in-stent restenosis.2,3,4,5 Clinical outcomes have demonstrated significant improvement in pain, swelling, and ulcer healing, substantial decrease of venous severity and disability scores and improved quality of life2,4,5,6,7, It has replaced bypass surgery as the primary treatment of venous outflow obstruction.

The VIRTUS study is being performed under a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). VIRTUS is a prospective, multicenter, single arm, non-randomized study that will include 200 patients, at a maximum of 30 investigational sites worldwide.
