When a patient is at risk of developing blood clots in the legs or a patient has been diagnosed with pulmonary embolus or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) an IVC Filter may be the solution.
What is An IVC Filter? – “An IVC filter is a metal umbrella or metal scaffolding, which is placed in the inferior vena cava to filter the blood flowing from the legs to the veins,” explained Dr. Sobieszczyk. The concept is for the filter to filter out any potential blood clots that might be traveling to the pulmonary artery
The Inferior Vena Cave is a large Vein in the abdomen, which returns deoxignated blood from the lower parts of the body to the lungs. This blood, from the lower half of the body, sometimes develops clots. A properly placed, working IVC Filter will prevent clots from ever reaching the heart. IVC Filters are typically used when more conventional solutions such as blood thinners have not worked.
IVC Filter Stops Clots
Different types of IVC Filters
According to the North American Thrombosis Forum, there are basically two types of IVC Filters. One is permanent and the other is retrievable. When the risk of blood clotting is very high, a doctor might choose the permanent model. This option is often preferred if the patient has not responded to blood thinning medication. The development of the temporary filter was a result of the physician.desiring to retrieve the filter when the patient returned to good health.
The risks of having an IVC Filter implantation
As with any medical procedure, an IVC Filter has its own set of risks Anytime a foreign object is placed in one’s body there is a risk of causing DVT though the risk is very small. There is also a small risk of getting an infection. This risk is about one in a thousand. There is also a risk that the filter could actually move after insertion. This could cause damage to your blood vessel. Rarely the filter breaks off and parts of it can travel to your heart.
With the promise of a better quality of life, thousands of people put their bodies through this surgery. But when they came out of surgery, thousands of people now live with additional pain and suffering, with metal prongs permanently lodged in their IVC, perforated bowels, immense throbbing in their spine and even a higher risk of death.

Unfortunately, physicians and patients throughout the nation soon came to the realization that many IVC Filters were not working properly..

The most common problem was part of the filter breaking loose and then these small fragments were free to travel throughout the body. Eventually they would cause internal bleeding after puncturing and causing internal wounds.
