IVC Filter Side Effects


FAQ



What I Need to Learn About My IVC Filter
The inferior vena cava filter is designed to stop blood clots before they reach the heart and lungs. If your doctor has told you that such a filter might help you, you probably have many concerns and questions about what the filter will do in your body and what you need to know about living with an IVC filter.


An IVC filter could provide you with a reduction in risks related to blood clots. Some of the patient-groups who are candidates for IVC filter placement include:


• Patients with histories of DVT
• Patients with histories of pulmonary embolisms
• Patients who must remain immobile for a long period of time
• Patients who do not respond well to medication treatments for blood clot prevention


If you find yourself in these categories, or another that your physician has identified, an inferior vena cava filter is one option for blood clot risk prevention.  To have this procedure done, your doctor will arrange for what would most likely be an out-patient procedure. If you are immobile or have underlying health concerns you might need to remain one night in the hospital.


During the procedure to place the filter, you will have the insertion point numbed. This point is often the groin or neck area. Using a contrast dye and either an ultrasound or a series of x-rays, your doctor will then send the filter through the inferior vena cava. Once it reaches the optimal location, the doctor will release (or open) the filter. This is a wire-mesh device. The idea is for the filter to collect any travelling blood clots before they reach the heart or lungs.


After the filter is placed in your IVC, the doctor will remove the insertion catheter. You will probably get to leave the facility within a few hours, but you should plan to have a driver with you and follow the postoperative care instructions from your doctor. Most patients can resume their normal routines within just a day or two of the procedure.
Follow-up considerations should be reviewed with your doctor. These include being mindful of any unusual pain, bleeding, bruising or swelling at the site of the catheter insertion. Other warning signs post-procedure include shortness of breath, numbing or feelings of coldness in your legs, or a fever.


The standard IVC filter is designed to be left in place. Only in unique circumstances do doctors feel the need to remove the device. Such circumstances include a shifting of the IVC filter placement. In these cases it needs to be captured and then repositioned. The longer an IVC filter remains in place, the more challenging it is to successfully and effectively remove it.
