FAQ





When Should IVC Filters Be Used to Treat Deep Vein Thrombosis
Determining when IVC filters are the best option for treatment of deep vein thrombosis is a tough decision for any doctor. Estimates show as many as 600,000 people develop issues with deep vein thrombosis and potentially deadly blood clots each year. Patients with deep vein thrombosis have the highest risk of developing pulmonary embolism – about 40%. Treatment options are limited and often leave patients and doctors wondering what the best option is, especially since there are risks no matter what is done.


Little Evidence to Support Effectiveness of IVC Filters for DVT
Despite the frequent use of IVC filters to treat deep vein thrombosis, there is relative little evidence in favor of the process. The general guidelines are that filters should only ever be used in patients that cannot tolerate anticoagulant medications or for whom anticoagulants are ineffective. Some doctors choose to use retrievable filters when the risk for pulmonary embolism is temporary. While this might put minds at ease, there is reason to believe the retrievable filters are even more dangerous than permanent ones.  Many people believe the problem with retrievable filters is that they are not being removed once the risk has passed. The filters are made to be used for only a temporary basis. Most temporary filters are meant to be left in place for a few weeks at most.


Doctors who have placed temporary IVC filters in some cases did not remove them within the appropriate time frame, something the device manufacturers said would not be problematic. Patients soon found their devices were only meant to last a short while and when left place beyond the “expiration date,” they fractured into pieces or disconnected completely and migrated to another part of the body.


In some cases, doctors had no choice but to leave the filters in place. When they began the procedure for removal, they realized scar tissue had formed around the device and there was no way to safely remove it from the patient’s body.


FDA Recommendations
The FDA has recommended the best way to avoid problems with retrievable filters and to reduce the issues with IVC filters overall is to follow the removal guidelines. If removal guidelines seem generous, the FDA recommends removing filters within 60 days. If the risk for pulmonary embolism is not expected to clear within that time frame, it might be necessary to place a permanent filter until the design of the retrievable filters is more reliable.
