IVC Filter Side Effects


FAQ



IVC Filters 101
There are many unique jobs within the human body. The inferior vena cava (IVC) has the responsibility of carrying de-oxygenated blood from your lower limbs back to the heart and lungs. Problems within the pulmonary arteries arise when things such as blood clots block the transportation of the blood, or when clots within these arteries are carried to the heart or lungs.


The IVC filter is shaped like a slightly-open umbrella. It is implanted within the IVC, usually just beneath your kidneys. The filter is made of very fine wire and is designed to stop blood clots from moving on to the major organs. These blood clots usually originate within the veins deep in your legs. The clots then move through your system, on their way to the IVC and eventually your heart and then lungs.


The IVF filter lets the blood flow as needed, but collect clots before they can block an artery. A blocked artery is called a pulmonary embolism. The symptoms you might experience from this include chest pain and difficult breathing. In the worst cases, a pulmonary embolism can cause death.


If you and your physician are considering an IVC filter to protect you against the dangers of blood clots travelling to your heart or lungs, this might mean that you have a history of blood clots, especially those that do not respond to medications. Common medications include Coumadin and Heparin.


Pay close attention to the instructions your physician gives you regarding preparation for the IVC filter placement. You might need to restrict your diet the previous day, and not consume either foods or liquids after midnight of evening prior to the procedure. Be sure that you discuss with your doctor all medications you are taking and how either continuing to take them or discontinuing them might impact your health and the procedure itself.
You will most likely remain awake for the procedure, but the site of the catheter will be numbed. Using contrast dye your doctor will implant the device. The catheter will then be removed.


Observation and rest will likely be done for up to perhaps 12 hours in the hospital, although some patients do need to remain overnight. In either case, your doctor will likely want someone with you when you are discharged. The IVC filter is made to remain in the IVC permanently. The longer it stays in place, the more difficult it would be for your doctors to attempt to remove it. Make sure you continue to follow healthy eating and exercising habits according the guidelines of your physician. You will likely need to return to your doctor for a post-operative visit.
