IVC Filter Side Effects


FAQ




What Should I Know about IVC Placement and Removal?
IVC filters are placed in patients who are at risk for deep vein thrombosis and, especially, pulmonary embolism. In the past, filters were permanent and there was no need to ever remove them unless something malfunctioned or broke – which was rare.
More recently, IVC filter manufacturers have developed temporary filters, known as retrievable IVC filters. These filters are intended to be used when there is a temporary risk of blood clots, such as during an injury or shortly after surgery. Though these retrievable filters are sometimes left in place and marketed as safe to leave in place, the FDA has warned doctors and patients that retrievable filters should be removed within the recommended time frame.


IVC Filter Retrieval Process
The process of removal is similar to the placement process. Doctors use image guidance to insert a catheter and locate the filter. The catheter is inserted through the neck or groin, just as it was when the filter was placed. The catheter captures the filter, closes it, and pulls it through the tube to withdraw it from the body.  The removal procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis and usually lasts only about an hour. There are instances in which patients are kept overnight to ensure the procedure when smoothly and there are no serious side effects.


Risks of Removing an IVC Filter
Removing an IVC filter does pose some risks, but none as serious as leaving in a retrievable filter. Patients can suffer side effects or complications during the removal procedure, such as a reaction to anesthetic. It is also possible the tools used for removal could harm the patient by puncturing or piercing the soft tissue in the body. This is very rare and a complication present with all surgical procedures.


The important thing to remember about having your IVC filter removed is that it decreases your risk for complications. Some people have postponed removing their filter or were advised removal was unnecessary, only to find their filter caused serious health problems long-term. Filters can break free from their implantation location and wreak havoc throughout the body. Some people have suffered serious consequences and have been forced to undergo follow-up procedures to repair or remove their filter. Removing the filter within the appropriate time frame is better than waiting to remove it when you are experiencing problems.


Also keep in mind your doctor might still keep you on or prescribe for you anticoagulant medication. This thins your blood and keeps your risk for developing blood clots low, once the IVC filter is removed.
