FAQ





Why Do I Need an IVC Filter?
Has your doctor told you that you need an IVC filter to reduce your risk of complications from blood clots? If the answer is yes, chances are you are wondering just what this device is, why your doctor thinks it is the answer for you, and what to expect from the procedure. Let’s looks at the answers to those questions.


What is an IVC filter? The inferior vena cava brings blood from the lower part of your body that has already distributed its oxygen-rich blood, and takes it back to the heart and lungs. Here it is refilled and sent back to your body. Blood clots can interrupt this process. The IVC (inferior vena cava) filter is a device shaped like a cone. It is made from thin wire and acts almost like a colander. Blood can pass through but the device is designed to catch the clots.


Why would my doctor want me to have an IVC filter? There are many dangers you face if you are at elevated risks of forming blood clots. Your risk might be elevated if you have a history of DVT (deep vein thrombosis), or if you have a history of pulmonary emboli. You might also be sedentary or immobile because of medical concerns or reasons, and this type of lifestyle increases the risk of forming clots, especially in the legs. Blood clots that move from the lower limbs and to the heart or lungs are very dangerous. Depending upon their size and exact location, they might cause you pain in the chest, with or without difficulty catching your breath. You are also at risk for a heart attack. Often patients with these histories first try medications to lower their risks of clots. If you have done this with poor results, your doctor might want to try something more permanent such as an IVC filter.


What can I expect from the IVC filter procedure? If you and your doctor decide that the IVC filter is for you, the procedure will likely be done in just one day at a clinic or hospital. The site of catheterization will be numbed, usually your neck or groin area. The doctor will then use contrast dye and imaging to guide the filter to the best location in your inferior vena cava. Once it is in the proper location it will be opened, almost like an umbrella. Here it is supposed to stay and catch blood clots that are moving toward your heart or lungs. After the filter is in place, the catheter is removed and you are likely to be able to go home later that same day. Plan for someone to drive you home from the procedure and possibly stay with you for the first 24 hours of recovery.
