How will my IVC filter be inserted?
Your IVC filter will be inserted during a procedure that lasts just about an hour in most cases. A team of your healthcare providers will work together to formulate a plan and provide you with the information you need before your surgery. This information will include things like:
-Dietary restrictions in the weeks, days, and hours before your surgery.
-A plan for your current medications. If you are on insulin your dosage might need to be adjusted to account for your dietary restrictions leading up to your surgery. Your doctor will also need to develop a plan with you if you are on blood thinners.
-What to wear the day of the procedure. You probably won’t be able to wear jewelry and will be asked to remove all metals (watches, glasses, etc.).
-A plan for completing a health physical. This will include a blood test and you’ll have your blood pressure, pulse, and oxygen rate recorded as well.
-A discussion of allergies. If you are having a procedure that involves contrast dye, but you have had poor reactions such as hives to iodine solutions, pre-surgical medication might be needed.
-A plan for someone to drive you home after the procedure, and possibly stay with you for the first 12-24 hours.
On the day of your appointment you will have an IV inserted. This allows your medical team to administer fluids and medications if needed. In the event of an emergency, this also gives immediate access to your system.
A medical caregiver, likely a nurse, will clean and prep the site for the catheter. Your doctor will determine if it is best to use the jugular in the neck or go through a vein in your groin. Once the catheter is in place your doctor will use a guide wire to send the IVC filter to its final location in your inferior vena cava, just below your kidneys. At this point the device will be deployed. The device is designed to remain in position indefinitely. Here in your inferior vena cava, one of the largest veins in your body, the wire filter will restrict blood clots from passing through to your lungs.
In best case scenarios, the filter stops the clots and then either natural processes in your body or the use of medications will help to break down the clots. Once they are small enough to be considered safe they will pass through the IVC filter. Occasionally complications arise and very large clots do not break down on their own and eventually a build-up of clots becomes a dangerous situation for patients. This is why it is critical that you inform your doctor of any usual symptoms or pain, and that you attend your check-up appointments.
