OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate outcomes of endovascular recanalization of the inferior vena cava (IVC) and iliac veins with long-standing chronic venous obstruction caused by nonmalignant disease. METHODS: Medical records for 66 patients who underwent endovascular recanalization of the IVC with or without iliac veins from January 2001 to December 2014 at our medical center were retrospectively reviewed. Primary outcomes included morbidity and mortality; secondary outcomes included primary, primary assisted, and secondary patency and resolution of symptoms...

OBJECTIVE: Venous thromboembolism remains one of the leading causes of maternal mortality in the developed world. Retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filters have a role in the prevention of lethal pulmonary emboli when anticoagulation is contraindicated or has failed [1]. It is unclear whether or not the physiological changes in pregnancy influence efficacy and complications of these devices. The decision to place an IVC filter in pregnancy is complex and there is limited information in terms of benefit and risk to the mother...

Mr GW is a 77-year-old gentleman who is hoping to have a total knee replacement of his left knee. He underwent a knee replacement on the right in 2011 under spinal anaesthetic, where his postoperative period was complicated by a saddle pulmonary embolus (PE).

PURPOSE: To evaluate inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement and retrieval rates among radiologists, vascular surgeons, cardiologists, other surgeons, and all other health care providers for Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries in the years 2012-2015. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The nationwide Medicare Physician/Supplier Procedure Summary Master Files were used to determine the volume and utilization rate of IVC filter placement, IVC filter repositioning, and IVC filter retrieval, which correspond to procedure codes 37191, 37192, and 37193, respectively...

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters were first introduced in 1967 by Kazi Mobin-Uddin and later improved by Lazar Greenfield in the 1980s becoming a major component of catastrophic pulmonary embolism prevention. Nevertheless, filters are not entirely harmless. The long term risks include caval thrombosis, visceral penetration, and filters can serve as a nidus for infection. Filter retrieval is often complicated by intimal hyperplasia especially with increased indwelling time. Historically, Greenfield filters in place for longer than 3 weeks were considered permanent due to the risks of retrieval...

Pulmonary embolism is a severe, potentially life-threatening condition. Inferior vena cava filters have been used to prevent recurrent pulmonary embolisms. However, the build-up of thrombosis in vena cava filters after deployment presents a severe problem to patients. Previous studies proposed that filters with helical flow are beneficial and capable of alleviating this problem. In this study, the hemodynamic performances of four typical helical flow inducers in the vena cava are determined using computational fluid dynamics simulations (steady-state and pulsatile flow) and compared...

PURPOSE: To compare the technical success of filter retrieval in Denali, Tulip, and Option inferior vena cava filters. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis of Denali, Gunther Tulip, and Option IVC filters was conducted. Retrieval failure rates, fluoroscopy time, sedation time, use of advanced retrieval techniques, and filter-related complications that led to retrieval failure were recorded. RESULTS: There were 107 Denali, 43 Option, and 39 Tulip filters deployed and removed with average dwell times of 93...

Common obstacles to successful retrieval of retrievable inferior vena cave filter include embedded filter hook and severe tilt of the filter. We described a modified wire-loop snare technique using self-made fishhook-like pigtail catheter and 11-F-long sheath to retrieve a severe tilted filter with embedded hook successfully. The modified wire-loop snare technique is simple and effective requiring only standard equipment and single venous access. This technique may be suitable for some types of retrievable filter with embedded hook...

Background: The inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) is very effective for preventing pulmonary embolism in patients who cannot undergo anticoagulation therapy. However, if a filter is placed in the body permanently, it may lead to other complications. Methods: A retrospective study was performed of 159 patients who underwent retrievable Cook Celect IVCF implantation between January 2007 and April 2015 at a single center. Baseline characteristics, indications, and complications caused by the filter were investigated...

BACKGROUND: The management of patients with isolated deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is controversial, leading to overtreatment and undertreatment with several complications and increased cost. The aim of this study was to describe the management of isolated calf DVT (ICDVT) in a university hospital. METHODS: Data on patients with acute DVT in our hospital are prospectively entered in a database through our venous thromboembolism team. All patients had an objective diagnosis with duplex ultrasound (DU) in our accredited vascular laboratory...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess the retrieval characteristics and rate of filter-related complications associated with use of the Celect Platinum (Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) inferior vena cava filter (IVCF). METHODS: A single-center, retrospective review was conducted to identify patients who received a Celect Platinum IVCF between June 2013 and February 2016. The patients' charts and imaging records (computed tomography [CT] and cavography) associated with filter placement, follow-up, and filter retrieval procedures were assessed for attempted and successful retrieval rates and filter-related complications...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a risk factor for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and venous thromboembolism (VTE). VTE is the most common cause of mortality in patients undergoing bariatric surgery. There is considerable variation in practice regarding methods, dosages and duration of prophylaxis in this patient population. Most of the literature is based on Western patients and specific guidelines for Asians do not exist. METHODS: We conducted a web-based survey amongst 11 surgeons from high-volume centres in Asia regarding their DVT prophylaxis measures in patients undergoing bariatric surgery...

A 66-year-old man, who had been diagnosed with deep venous thrombosis (DVT), and who was treated with a vitamin K antagonist (VKA) and who had undergone the implantation of an inferior vena cava filter, was admitted due to an exacerbation of DVT. VKA was administered again; however, the patient's DVT worsened. Further examinations revealed colon cancer, which led to a diagnosis of Trousseau's syndrome. The regression of the thrombi was confirmed after the administration of heparin and the resection of the tumors...

REVIEW
William Geerts, Rita Selby
There has been a dramatic increase in vena cava filter (VCF) use over the past 20 years in the absence of evidence that filters provide a net patient benefit or are required in most cases. This increase is largely attributable to the availability of retrievable filters and expanded indications, particularly as primary prophylaxis in patients thought to be at high risk of pulmonary embolism. Substantial variability in VCF use, unrelated to patient clinical factors, has been shown between hospitals, from region to region, and among various countries...

Fat embolism is a recognised complication of bony injury and orthopaedic surgery, commonly involving the long bones and pelvis. We report on the case of a 68-year-old renal transplant recipient who developed acute kidney injury following surgical stabilisation of metastatic carcinoma of the acetabulum and replacement of the proximal femur. A CT renal angiogram demonstrated a large fat embolus in the inferior vena cava (IVC) and left iliac veins below the level of IVC filter, with impaired renal perfusion. The risks of open or endovascular lipothrombectomy were felt to outweigh the potential benefits...
