Intravascular stents have been developed as an adjunct to balloon angioplasty to scaffold the inner vessel surface to improve patency of stenoses and occlusions of arteries and veins. Several types of stents have been described in the literature and have been used in animal experiments as well as in clinical studies, but the clinical application of venous stents is still rather limited and mostly restricted to arteries. We experienced one case of successful palliative treatment in a extrinsically compressed lilac vein by metastatic lymph node using a expandable metallic stent.
