IVC Filter Side Effects
I have questions before I get an IVC filter
Has your doctor recommended that you agree to have an IVC filter placed as preventative care? Are you filled with questions about the filter and the surgery? Getting the answers to those questions is important. The next time you visit with your vascular care team, take along a list of your questions and learn as much as you can about your condition and how an IVC filter can help you manage your health.
Why are you recommending me for an IVC filter?
Your doctor will have your specific answer. In general, though, doctors recommend IVC filter use in patients who have:
- Already had at least one pulmonary embolism (blood clot reaching the lungs)
- A previous record of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), where deep within the veins, often in the legs, clots form.
- Bad reactions to or inability to take blood thinners. These medications help to break down existing clots and to prevent more from forming.
- To remain immobile. This includes patients in the hospital, recovering from surgery, or even those who have just given birth.
How does filtration in my IVC help me? Think of the blood clots as roadblocks. The more roadblocks you have in your circulatory system, the more difficult it is for your blood to travel and do the things it needs to do to keep you healthy. If there are too many roadblocks, they might stop healthy blood flow entirely. If one of the roadblocks moves on its own, it can end up in locations such as the lungs, where it can cause major problems. The filter device helps to make sure those clots – those roadblocks – do not move further than the filter.
What happens if too many clots reach the filter? This is a rare complication with the IVC filter. Occasionally a build-up of clots at the filter causes patients to notice gradual swelling in their leg. In some of these patients, their venous system reroutes around the blockage and accommodates it. In other patients the filter and clot blockage require surgical intervention.
What side effects will I experience? Side effects that you might experience related to the procedure include a reaction to the dye or sedation. You could have mild bruising on your leg or neck where the catheter was placed.
What risks are there? During the procedure you could have an allergic reaction to one of the medications. You also face a risk of excessive bleeding, especially if you take anticoagulants. Perforation or damage to a vein is a minimal risk. After the procedure risks include a filter that moves or breaks. This is a rare, but serious, complication.
