The purpose of this study was to assess the long-term clinical sequelae of inferior vena cava (IVC) filter thrombus and the effect of anticoagulation on filter thrombus. Of 1,718 patients who had IVC filters placed during 2001–2008, 598 (34.8%) had follow-up abdominal CT. Filter thrombus was seen in 111 of the 598 (18.6%). There were 44 men (39.6%). The mean age at filter placement was 64 years. The medical diseases included cancer in 64, trauma in 15, stroke in 12, and others in 20. The… Expand
Preliminary Experience With Option Inferior Vena Cava Filter
TLDR
The Option filter was effective and safe during implantation and short-term follow-up and associated with high technical success at retrieval. Expand
Retrievable Inferior Vena Cava Filters in Trauma Patients: Prevalence and Management of Thrombus Within the Filter.
TLDR
A small thrombus within the filter can be safely removed without additional management and CDT for reduction of the clot burden in filters was effective and safe. Expand
A case of IVC filter thrombosis
TLDR
A 77 year-old male presented to the authors' institution for evaluation of lower extremity edema andComputed tomography of the abdomen revealed complete IVC filter thrombosis. Expand
Vena Cava Filters: State of the Art
TLDR
The vena cava filtration, at least for these patients, has been described to overcome limitations of the first-line treatment of DVT, and some patients could not be anticoagulated, and others will experience antICOagulation failure. Expand

TLDR
In this limited performance and safety evaluation, the Trellis-8 thrombectomy system combined with adjunctive therapies, such as mechanical thromBectomy and balloon angioplasty, was effective in 75% of patients with IVC filter–related acute caval occlusion. Expand
Endovascular management of inferior vena cava filter thrombotic occlusion
TLDR
Endovascular management of inferior vena cava occlusion is feasible, safe, and effective in decreasing thrombus burden in the presence of an inferior v Rena cava filter. Expand
Inferior Vena Cava Thromb osis
Thrombosis of the inferior vena cava (IVC) is an under-recognized entity that is associated with significant shortand long-term morbidity and mortality. In absence of a congenital anomaly, the mostExpand
Inferior Vena Cava Filter Thrombosis: A Review of Current Concepts, Evidence, and Approach to Management
TLDR
Evidence suggests that contrast-enhanced computed tomography is preferable to Doppler sonography and certain double-basket filter designs and a hypercoagulable state are associated with increased incidence of IVC filter thrombosis. Expand
Contemporary Rates of Inferior Vena Cava Filter Thrombosis and Risk Factors.
TLDR
This study of over 5,000 patients with IVCFs suggests that antiplatelet therapy should be administered after IVCF placement to decreased risk of IVCF thrombosis. Expand
Inferior vena cava filters: indications and management
TLDR
Overall, the use of IVC filters, especially in prophylactic situations, will remain controversial until randomized, controlled trials are performed within each specific patient population. Expand

TLDR
Early filter thrombosis appears to be due to intracaval extension of deep vein thROMbosis, and this emphasizes the need for appropriate anticoagulation. Expand

TLDR
The Simon nitinol inferior vena cava filter was inserted in 114 consecutive patients at two institutions for prophylaxis of pulmonary embolism for clinical efficacy, mechanical stability, and safety and there was no immediate complication following filter insertion. Expand

TLDR
Patients experiencing PE after insertion of VCF mandate an aggressive diagnostic approach that should include venacavography and a search for identifiable risk factors including procoagulant state, which confirms the reliability and low complication rate for VCF. Expand

TLDR
Vena caval filters represent a potentially important but poorly evaluated therapeutic modality in the prevention of pulmonary emboli and Randomized trials are necessary to establish the appropriate place for vena Caval filters in the treatment of venous thromboembolic disease. Expand

TLDR
Inferior vena cava filters can be placed in patients who cannot receive concomitant anticoagulation without placing them at significantly higher risk of development of venous thromboembolism. Expand

TLDR
Although it appears that IVC filters do reduce long-term pulmonary embolism rates, there may be a higher associated incidence of IVC thromBosis and lower-extremity deep venous thrombosis than with anticoagulation alone. Expand
