Variation in the use of inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) across hospitals has been observed, suggesting differences in quality of care. Hospitalization metrics associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE) patients have not been compared based on IVCF utilization rates using a national sample. We conducted a descriptive retrospective study using the Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD) to delineate the variability of hospitalization metrics across the hospital quartiles of IVCF utilization for VTE patients...

BACKGROUND: Malignancy is associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism. Inferior vena cava filters are a viable alternative when anticoagulation is infeasible because of the risk of bleeding. Although the current guidelines recommend that all patients with a vena cava filter be treated with anticoagulation treatment when the risk of bleeding is reduced, studies concerning the role of concomitant anticoagulation after vena cava filter insertion in high-risk patients are scarce...

BACKGROUND: The rate of vena cava (IVC) filter placement has increased over the past decade, especially in the orthopaedic trauma patient population. With the increasing use of IVC filters, radiologists and referring clinicians must be familiar with potential complications. CLINICAL CASE: This case report presents an 18-year-old polytraumatized patient who had an IVC filter placed and required T8-L2 posterior spinal fusion. At 4.5 years of follow-up, a computed tomography (CT) scan for painful spinal hardware incidentally found that the IVC filter had migrated into the L3 vertebral body...

Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome is a rare mixed malformation characterized by congenital varicose veins, low-flow venous and lymphatic malformations, hypertrophy of soft tissue and bone, and capillary malformations. A 35-year-old man with a diagnosis of Klippel-Trénaunay syndrome presented to the clinic with significant pain and swelling in the left leg. Initial conservative management with compression therapy failed. He was then managed surgically with preoperative placement of an inferior vena cava filter (because of a history of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism), followed by resection of the lateral embryonic vein, ligation of large perforators, and excision of smaller varicosities...

PURPOSE: To compare changes in inferior vena cava (IVC) filter positional parameters from insertion to removal and examine how they affect retrievability amongst various filter types. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 447 patients (260 men, 187 women) with a mean age of 55 years (range: 13-91 years) who underwent IVC filter retrieval between 2007-2014 were retrospectively included. Post-insertion and pre-retrieval angiographic studies were assessed for filter tilt, migration, strut wall penetration and retrieval outcomes...

Introduction: Emergency department (ED) patients with acute pulmonary embolism (PE) despite therapeutic anticoagulation at the time of diagnosis are uncommonly encountered and present a diagnostic and management challenge. Their characterization and outcomes are poorly described. We sought to describe the prevalence and characteristics of therapeutically anticoagulated patients among a population of patients with acute PE in a community setting and to describe treatment changes and 30-day outcomes...

Background: Studies have not well defined the impact of adherence to published guidelines on the outcomes of patients with acute pulmonary embolism ( PE ). Methods: In this prospective cohort study of patients admitted to a respiratory department (N=2096), we evaluated whether patients with PE had better outcomes if they were acutely managed according to international guidelines. Outcomes consisted of all-cause mortality, PE-related mortality, recurrent venous thromboembolism ( VTE ), and major bleeding events during the first month of follow-up after diagnosis...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis is very rare, particularly in the absence of an apparent congenital caval abnormality or hypercoagulable state. We herein report an unusual case of a healthy and active 62-year-old male bodybuilder with a mass-like IVC thrombus. We placed an IVC filter and began treatment with rivaroxaban. The patient recovered successfully, and the IVC thrombus completely disappeared three months later. This case suggested that extrinsic compression of IVC by a tightened weightlifting belt around the abdomen is a triggering factor of IVC thrombosis, and rivaroxaban, a new oral anticoagulant, may be a useful option for treatment...

Objective : Although deep vein thrombosis (DVT) followed by pulmonary thromboembolism (PE) is a critical complication during pregnancy, there have been few reports about its intrapartum management. We evaluated intrapartum management by using a temporary inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) in pregnant women with PE/DVT. Materials and Methods : Eleven women with PE/DVT during pregnancy between January 2004 and December 2016 were included. The patients were hospitalized for intravenous unfractionated heparin infusion after acute PE/DVT onset...

BACKGROUND: Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter is indicated in patients with acute venous thromboembolism (VTE) in whom therapeutic anticoagulation is contraindicated. While prophylactic insertion of an IVC filter may be considered for patients at high risk of VTE, there are significant differences between clinical guidelines on the role of IVC filters. These discrepancies have arisen predominantly because of the paucity of data on the efficacy and safety of IVC filters. We, therefore, evaluated the indications for filter insertion, the rate of filter retrieval and complications in patients who received IVC filters at King Abdulaziz Medical City (KAMC), Riyadh, Saudi Arabia...

There is a paucity of robust clinical trial data to guide the treatment of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) thus the clinical guidelines rely heavily on expert opinion. Pulmonary Embolism Response Teams (PERT) have been developed to streamline the care of patients with acute PE. We conducted a survey among 100 experts in the field of PE during the second annual meeting of the PERT Consortium. Respondents were queried with respect to their demographic information, clinical practice questions and clinical vignettes...

Amie Goodin, Qiong Han, Driss Raissi, Joshua D Brown
OBJECTIVE: Inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) are indicated for therapeutic and prophylactic treatment of venous thromboembolism in patients where anti-coagulation has failed or is contraindicated. Retrievable IVCFs are not always retrieved despite clinical recommendations. The purpose of this review is to compare results in the literature regarding interventions to improve IVCF retrieval rates. METHODS: Articles were identified via the search terms "vena cava filters" and "inferior vena cava filters" in conjunction with "retrieval...

BACKGROUND: A permanently indwelling filter in the inferior vena cava (IVC) may induce caval thrombosis, which could develop and evolve from an acute to a chronic phase. The differential diagnosis of acute and chronic thromboses determines the treatment strategy. The role of computed tomography (CT) in diagnosing acute and chronic intra-filter and IVC thromboses has not been well established. This retrospective study summarizes the CT signs that indicate acute and chronic phases of intra-filter and IVC thromboses...
