FAQ





DVT and IVC Filters
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is the presence of a blood clot that forms in a deep vein, usually in the legs. It is the type of blood clot that can cause serious complications, especially if it detaches and moves to another location in the body. DVT blood clots require immediate medical attention and can block blood flow to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism, if not treated properly. DVT can also trigger a variety of other problems, including swelling and pain in the legs.


Approximately 350,000 to 600,000 people get a blood clot in the legs or in the lungs each year. Many of these clots form because of inactivity, but surgery and injuries can also increase the risk for deep vein thrombosis. DVT is especially a problem for those who are paralyzed or bedridden, and the risk is magnified if they have a family history of blood clots or a pre-existing clotting disorder.


Symptoms of DVT include swelling, a warm feeling in the leg, redness, achiness or tenderness, and pain that increases with time and eventually becomes constant. Sometimes smaller blood clots do not cause symptoms and the first indication there is a problem is when pulmonary embolism occurs.


Immediate Treatment is Needed
Because DVT is so risky, doctors want to take immediate action to reduce the risk the condition will trigger pulmonary embolism. Medications like anticoagulants can be used to prevent clots from forming and prevent existing clots from increasing in size. If a person has a high risk for developing DVT, doctors will usually prescribe anticoagulant therapy.
Sometimes more aggressive treatment is needed, or anticoagulants are not an option. It is in these instances that doctors consider IVC filters. IVC filters are placed in the deep vein where the clots occur. They do not prevent clotting, but they do block clots from traveling to the heart or lungs where they can cause damage. The clot simply stays in place, held back by the filter until it dissolves.


IVC Filter Safety in Question
Unfortunately, there is concern about the safety of IVC filters and doctors are not always sure the risk is worth the reward when it comes to treating DVT with a filter. In some cases, the IVC filter is the only option and the pulmonary embolism risk is so high it is worth any potential complications the filter might cause.


In other cases, the filters are creating more trouble than the condition they are there to treat. Not everyone supports the use of IVC filters to treat DVT.
