Advanced Techniques for Complicated IVC Filter Retrievals: A Clinical Perspective

Kush Shah MD, MBA1; Michael O’Neill, MD2; Ami Vakharia, MD2; Reginald Baker, MD2; Jason Salsamendi, MD2; Govindarajan Narayanan, MD2

From the 1University of Miami School of Medicine and 2Jackson Memorial Hospital Department of Radiology, Miami, Florida. 

Retrieval rates for inferior vena cava filters is low, despite the risks associated with longer dwell times. The authors describe various retrieval techniques for challenging filter removal cases.

Vena Cava Filters: Too Often, Too Many, or Just Right?

Wednesday 04/30/14 | 3,844 reads

ABSTRACT: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) comprising both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common disease in the general population. The mainstay of the treatment for the most patients is anticoagulation. However, for patients who fail anticoagulation or are unable to receive anticoagulation because of a contraindication or increased risk of bleeding, inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) offer an attractive alternative for prevention of PE. Although beneficial in some patients, the utilization of IVCF has skyrocketed despite limited level I evidence. continue reading
