May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS) is a mechanical problem that can increase your chances of blood clots. It is not an inherited or genetic condition. It occurs when the right iliac artery compresses the left iliac vein. This causes an increased chance of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT or leg clot) in the left leg.
