IVC Filter Side Effects


How can IVC filters combat DVT?
Deep veins exist within the layers of muscle and tissue. They provide a channel for blood travelling to and from the heart. The vena cava is the largest vein, and it takes blood from the extremities after it has already successfully delivered a payload of oxygen and sends the blood to the lungs. The process restarts. Certain people are at risk for blood clots in the deep veins, and this is called deep vein thrombosis.

Who is at risk for deep vein thrombosis (DVT)?
People are at risk for deep vein thrombosis when an interruption in or defect of the clotting mechanisms happens. Reduced healthy blood flow is the general culprit, and this can be the result of:

  • A major operation elsewhere in the body
  • A broken bone in the lower extremity
  • Genetic factors that result in clotting issues
  • Hormone therapy
  • Prolonged immobility, especially when this immobility involves the lower limbs
  • Travel (people who travel frequently or for long durations must endure long waits, usually in a restricted, seated position)
  • Obesity, history or cardiac problems, etc.

What are the warning signs of DVT?
Deep vein thrombosis does not always present in patients with specific and obvious symptoms.  Symptoms that may arise most commonly include pain in the area where the clot is, sometimes associated with a feeling of warmth in the surrounding skin and tissue. The patient might also have swelling in the region beyond the clot. For instance, if a clot is in the hip, the leg on that side or perhaps both legs could begin to swell. This happens because circulation is compromised.

What are treatment options for DVT?
The most common method of treating DVT is medication. The medications are designed to provide anticoagulation factors to the blood supply. This can help reduce the size of existing clots. This medication is also used to keep patients who are at risk of DVT from developing new clots. The more clots a patient has, the more likely it is that more clots will develop as the blood continues to slow from the clots that are already present.
Beyond medications, compression is a treatment option, but this is typically used in conjunction with medications. A filtration device inserted into the vena cava, called an inferior vena cava filter, is a surgical option. It has no consequences on existing clots. It cannot prevent new clots. It can, however, prevent existing clots from causing a pulmonary embolism (PE). A pulmonary embolism is when a blood clot reaches the lungs. This can be deadly.

The IVC filter works by acting upon the blood flow as a crossing guard, preventing clots from passing on to the major organs. It will allow healthy cells to continue on their journey. The procedure to place the filter is done with a catheter, contrast dye, and imaging. It usually takes just about 60-90 minutes, and does not always require the patient to be fully sedated.
