IVC FIlter Side Effects


FAQ




What Complications Can Occur When My IVC Filter is Implanted?
In the days following IVC filter implantation, it is important to be on the lookout for symptoms that could indicate a problem with the procedure. If you develop a fever, feel unusual pain, or there is swelling or bleeding, you should notify your doctor.
Unfortunately, once the filter is in place and the immediate period after the procedure has passed, there is still a risk for complications. Many believe the long-term risks of using an IVC filter are far worse than the risks that initially occur. In some cases, filters even cause the exact complications they were put in place to avoid, such as blood clots and pulmonary embolism.


What are some of the long-term complications associated with IVC filters?


Filter Fracture
It is possible for pieces of a filter to break away and move through the body. When fractured pieces emoblize, they can damage internal organs and veins, potentially leading to death. It is also possible for the fractured parts to reach the heart and cause hemorrhagic pericardial effusion, ventricular tachycardia, and cardiac tamponade. All are potentially life-threatening and require immediate attention.


Filter Migration
In addition to breakage, entire filters can move through the body if they were not installed properly. When the filter fails to adhere to the walls of the vein, it can travel through the blood vessels. This might damage the blood vessels, or if it reaches an organ, cause serious organ damage.


Pulmonary Embolism
When an IVC filter malfunctions it is no longer able to perform as intended. This means until the issue is resolved, the patient is at as much risk for pulmonary embolism as he or she was before the placement procedure. Making matters worse, a malfunctioning filter can increase the risk for blood clots, triggering an increase in risk for pulmonary embolism.
If you are using an IVC filter to reduce your risk for pulmonary embolism, you should be on the lookout for signs of filter failure. These include blood clotting, chest pain, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, vomiting, and abdominal or back pain.


Patients with filters must be monitored on a regular basis by their doctor. Make sure you keep up with your appointments and report anything unusual, even if it seems as if it is not a big deal. The sooner your doctor knows about a symptom the sooner the problem can be resolved, potentially saving your life.
