Placement Of Inferior Vena Cava Filter For Pulmonary Thrombo Embolism

26 year old lady developed deep vein thrombosis in the left leg following delivery of her first born. 2 days later she had severe chest pain and breathlessness. Investigations revealed thrombotic occlusion of the left common iliac vein extending into the IVC. Chest X-Ray demonstrated signs of pulmonary embolism.

She underwent placement of a IVC Filter , percutaneously, under local anesthesia via the right femoral vein. She was also started on anti coagulants. She had no further episodes of pulmonary embolism.

IVC Filter placement is a well established method of preventing life threatening pulmonary thromboembolism, following deep vein thrombosis. The procedure is relatively simple, and is completed within 15 minutes, under local anesthesia. The IVC Filter is placed in the IVC below the renal arteries, and the filter helps in trapping large clots which may migrate up into the IVC.
