Abstract

IVC Filter Thrombosis & Management: A Case Presentation

IVC filters have been widely used in selective patients with deep venous thrombosis to prevent pulmonary embolism. IVC thrombosis is the most common complication of IVC filters which carries higher morbidity and mortality and poses as a diagnostic challenge. With increasing incidence of IVC thrombosis, clinicians should be well versed with diagnostic tools and management options available for its diagnosis and management. In addition of systemic anticoagulation, endovascular techniques are important adjuvant therapies in management of IVC thrombosis. We present a case report of IVC filter thrombosis managed successfully with endovascular intervention.
