IVC Filter Side Effects


How Do IVC Filters Work?
IVC filters are used to prevent complications from blood clots. If a large blood clot breaks free from the lower body and travels the pathway it needs to reach the heart or lungs, the complications can be deadly. When a person is at an increased risk for blood clots, doctors will prescribe an IVC filter be placed to prevent the complications related to clotting blood. This is especially the case when anticoagulant medications are not working or are just not an option because of a patient’s overall medical condition.

How Does the IVC Filter Work?
The principle behind IVC filters is simple. The device has an umbrella shape – a bit like the metal tools you find in novelty stores that are intended to wrap about your scalp and provide a relaxing massage. Doctors place the filter into the interior vena cava where it creates an umbrella to capture blood clots. As the clot moves through the system, it reaches the filter and remains there, allowing other blood to continue to flow around the device. Over time, the body naturally breaks down the blood clot so no damage is done.
IVC filters are put in place during a surgical procedure. Recovery time is minimal and there is relatively little risk during the procedure, other than the usual risks present in all surgical procedures. This includes events such as bad reactions to anesthetic, infection at the insertion site, and damage during placement to the arteries or other internal parts of the body. Surgical risks aren’t that common, but it is important you work with a doctor that is experienced in placing IVC filters and that you understand all of these risks before you decide a filter is right for you. For many, a second medical opinion helps them put their minds at ease.

Risks after the IVC Filter is in Place
Unfortunately, patients do suffer risks once the filter is in place. For some, the filter exacerbates the exact problem it is trying to manage. Some people have developed blood clots because of their IVC filter, instead of avoiding them.

One of the major risks associated with filters is the ability it has to migrate to other parts of the body. When this occurs, doctors must perform a second surgery to find the device and return it to its original location. IVC filter device migration is fairly common and something anyone considering a filter should discuss with their doctor beforehand.
