OBJECTIVE: This study aims to investigate the clinical value of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEU) before temporary inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) recovery in patients with deep venous thrombosis, in order to provide ultrasound signs for the recovery of IVCF in clinical practice. METHODS: The CEU manifestations of patients with deep vein thrombosis before temporary IVCF recovery were retrospectively analyzed. With the manifestations of digital subtraction angiography (DSA) or results of the surgical recovery of IVCF as the standard, the detection rate of a thrombus in IVCF was compared between conventional ultrasound and CEU; and the role of CEU in detecting complications of IVCF was analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: Post traumatic inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis is a rare and not well described entity with nonspecific clinical presentation. It remains a therapeutic challenge in traumatic context because of haemorrhagic risk due to anticoagulation. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We report a case of IVC thrombosis in an 18 year-old man who presented with liver injury following a traffic crash. The thrombosis was incidentally diagnosed on admission by computed tomography...

This report describes the technical feasibility of using the filter eversion technique after unsuccessful retrieval attempts of Option and Option ELITE (Argon Medical Devices, Inc, Athens, Texas) inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. This technique entails the use of endoscopic forceps to evert this specific brand of IVC filter into a sheath inserted into the common femoral vein, in the opposite direction in which the filter is designed to be removed. Filter eversion was attempted in 25 cases with a median dwell time of 134 days (range, 44-2,124 d)...

Failure to remove a retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter can cause severe complications with high treatment costs. Polydioxanone (PPDO) has been shown to be a good candidate material for resorbable IVC filters. However, PPDO is radioluscent under conventional imaging modalities. Thus, the positioning and integrity of these PPDO filters cannot be monitored by computed tomography (CT) or x-ray. Here we report the development of radiopaque PPDO IVC filters based on gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). Commercially available PPDO sutures were infused with AuNPs...

Inferior vena cava filters are important tools used to help prevent life-threatening pulmonary embolisms in hospitalized patients with contraindications to pharmacological prophylactic anticoagulation. This is a case report of a patient who had an inferior vena cava filter placed after a traumatic subdural hematoma. He made a complete recovery but was lost to follow-up until he presented 1825 days after filter deployment with abdominal pain discovered to be from penetration of the filter tines outside the lumen and into adjacent structures...

We encountered a 45-year-old Japanese man who suffered from pulmonary thromboembolism and huge right ventricular thrombus after inferior vena cava (IVC) filter implantation without apparent thrombus in either the deep veins or inside the IVC filter. The biochemical data showed a discrepancy in the level of fibrinogen between the immunological and thrombin time methods, suggesting hypodysfibrinogenemia. The sequencing of the fibrinogen γ-chain gene (FGG) revealed a novel heterozygous missense mutation in exon 8 - a TGT to TCT transversion in codon 326 - resulting in an amino acid substitution of serine for cysteine (γCys326Ser)...

Although anticoagulation remains the mainstay of therapy for patients with venous thromboembolism, guidelines recommend the use of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters in those who fail anticoagulation or have contraindications to its use. Short-term use of filters has proven effective in reducing the rate of pulmonary embolism. However, their extended use is associated with a variety of complications such as thrombosis, filter migration, or caval perforation, thus making a case for timely filter retrieval. This is the case of a 68-year-old female with a history of chronic oral anticoagulation use for multiple deep venous thrombi (DVT) and pulmonary emboli (PE) who required cervical and thoracic spinal intervention for spondylosis and foramina stenosis...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are useful adjuncts to prevent venous thromboembolism to the pulmonary circulation in the setting of contraindication for anticoagulation. Despite their proven decreased rate of pulmonary embolism, IVC filters are not without complications. We herein present the case of a 22-year-old man with a history of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome who was sent to our institution for evaluation with Budd-Chiari and post-thrombotic syndromes associated to a chronic retrohepatic complete IVC occlusion secondary to an IVC filter placed 5 years earlier...

Objective Systemic anticoagulation remains the standard for acute lower extremity (LE) deep venous thrombosis (DVT), but growing interest in catheter-directed thrombolysis (CDT) and its potential to reduce the incidence of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS) has led to advent of ultrasound-accelerated CDT (US-CDT). Few studies to date have examined the outcomes of US-CDT against traditional CDT (T-CDT). Methods This is a retrospective, single-center review of all patients treated for acute LE DVT over a five-year period with either US- and T-CDT...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement is indicated for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in patients with a contraindication to or a failure of anticoagulation. With the advent of retrievable IVC filters and their ease of placement, an increasing number of such filters are being inserted for prophylaxis in patients at high risk for VTE. Available data show that only a small number of these filters are retrieved within the recommended period, if at all, prompting the FDA to issue a statement on the need for their timely removal...

Inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) placement appears to be expanding over time despite absence of clear directing evidence.Two populations were studied. The first population included patients who received an IVCF between January 2005 and August 2013 at our community hospital center. Demographic information, indications for placement, and retrieval rate was recorded among other variables. The second population comprised of patients receiving an IVCF from 2005 to 2012 according to the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS) using ICD-9CM coding...

BACKGROUND: Anticoagulation is the primary treatment for pulmonary embolism (PE). Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are an adjunctive intervention to prevent recurrent pulmonary embolism. Long-term outcomes in elderly patients with contraindications to anticoagulation after IVC filter placement for prevention of recurrent pulmonary embolism have yet to be assessed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients ≥60years of age, that had an IVC filter placed between January 1st, 2008 and February 2nd, 2013, with a primary diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, were included...

BACKGROUND: Compared to permanent inferior vena cava (IVC) filters, higher complication rates occur with long-term use of temporary IVC filters. We aimed to identify patient clinical factors at the time of placement that could predict failure to remove a temporary IVC filter. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of both vascular surgery and interventional radiology prospective databases between December 2008 and December 2013. We analyzed a total number of 1,024 consecutive, temporary IVC filters stratified by whether retrieval was attempted or made permanent...

OBJECTIVES: Management of complicated indwelling inferior vena cava (IVC) filters has increased due to low retrieval rates. Filter migration and perforation are infrequent complications and require explantation of the filter. We report our recent experience with endovascular retrieval and surgical explantation of IVC filters after caval perforation. METHODS: This is a retrospective review of patients who had IVC filter explantation between 2014-2015. Patient demographics, indication for filter placement, clinical presentation, surgical indication and technique, and outcomes were noted...
