Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern,

Based on your description, the patency of both the stents and the vessels needs to be determined.

Arterial and venous Doppler of the lower limbs can be advised to rule out any acute ischemic event. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with catheter-directed thrombolysis can subsequently be used if needed.

But first and foremost, limb ischemia needs to be ruled out.

Please consult your doctor before deciding on any further course of action.

Wishing you the best of health
