IVC FIlter Side Effects


Are IVC Filters Safe?
The answer to this question depends on who you ask and how you define “safe.” For many, IVC filters are not only safe, they are helping to prevent a serious, potentially fatal condition related to deep vein thrombosis. Deep vein thrombosis is the occurrence of blood clots in deep veins of the body. If these clots break free, they can travel to other locations and create blood stoppages to important organs, including the lungs. Any risks associated with a device that can prevent this from occurring in someone with a high risk is overlooked in favor of the benefits.

Unfortunately, there are cases in which IVC filters create more harm than good. Chances are these patients would not consider IVC filters safe at all. And because the instances of this happening seem to be more and more common, many in the medical community are beginning to question the overall safety of these devices.

Problems with IVC filters primarily involve the filter malfunctioning once it is in place. There are patients who have complications related to placement, including infection, injury, or bad reactions to anesthetic or the device itself. However, the most serious complications occur once the device is in place and the patient has returned to his or her normal life.
It is possible for IVC filters to break. When parts break off of the main component, they travel throughout the body, which can lead to injury or infection. It is also possible for the entire device to migrate, also putting a patient at risk for serious complications. When either of these events occur, doctors must perform follow-up surgeries to locate the device or pieces, and repair, replace, or return the device to its original location. The additional surgery puts patients at risk for all of the original complications, as well as ones associated with the retrieval process.

So are IVC filters safe?
It depends on an individual patient’s circumstances. The devices are never 100% safe, but no medical procedure, treatment, or device ever is. The key to determining whether something is “safe enough” is weighing the risks and the benefits.

If you have deep vein thrombosis and are at a high risk for pulmonary embolism, and you have tried other alternatives for managing the risks and they have failed, IVC filters could be your best option. On the other hand, if your doctor recommends an IVC filter as the first line of defense for managing your risk for blood clots, you might want to consider all of your options and even seek a second opinion before committing to placement.
