IVC Filter Side Effects


FAQ




What are IVC Filters?
The inferior vena cava is considered the main route of the de-oxygenated blood from the lower limbs to the heart and lungs. When this de-oxygenated blood returns to the heart and lungs it is resupplied with oxygen and sent again to the extremities. Interruptions in this blood flow can have serious effects on the body. One such interruption is caused by blood clots. A blood clot in the knee, for example, might eventually travel to the heart, where it can cause chest pain and even a catastrophic cardiac event, resulting in death.
The purpose of IVC (inferior vena cava) filters is to prevent blood clots in the IVC from entering into the vital heart and lungs. The IVC is the largest vein in the body and protecting it from free moving clots is essential.


An IVC filter resembles a cone shape, constructed from thin wires. This shape, when opened and secured in the IVC, is supposed to catch blood clots in the inferior vena cava and prevent them from traveling to the heart or lungs.


Who Needs IVC Filters?
Several factors contribute to patients being at risk for developing blood clots. Some of these factors include medical histories of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolus. Sometimes patients experience medical traumas that leave them immobile for a time or who experience other traumatic medical events that leave them more susceptible to clot formation. Even routine surgeries and the accompanied recovery can raise the risk for blood clots.


Generally medications are used as the first choices against blood clots. These are not 100% effective, though. Some patients can’t take the medications, and others do not react well enough to the medications to sufficiently minimize their risks. The doctors of these patients then might opt for IVC filters to manage blood clot risks.


How are IVC Filters Inserted?
The procedure for IVC filter insertion is most often outpatient. An area in either the groin or the neck is numbed. A small decision is made and a catheter inserted at the site. Contrast dye is often used, along with x-rays or ultrasound technology, to guide the inserted wire and filter through the inferior vena cava.


Once the surgeon locates the best location for the IVC filter, it is opened, almost like an umbrella, within the IVC. If it work properly, the filter should trap blood clots and stop them from travelling any further through the inferior vena cava.


For most patients this procedure does not require an overnight stay in the hospital, and they can go home with a driver after several hours of observation. Standard IVC filters are not intended to be removed, and the more years that pass with them in place, the more dangerous it is to attempt to remove the filters.
