IVC Filter Insertion

Symptoms

  • Symptoms include the abrupt onset of ascites
  • Hepatomegaly
  • fluid retention below the diaphragm with edema of the lower extremity
  • Proteinuria can be associated with these symptoms.

Causes

The blood clots of deep vein thrombosis can be caused by anything that prevents your blood from circulating or clotting normally, such as injury to a vein, surgery, certain medications and limited movement

More about Treatment

The IVC filter is placed through a small incision in a vein in your groin or neck.

A thin, flexible tube (catheter) is inserted into this vein.

The catheter is then gently moved into your IVC. A collapsed IVC filter is sent with the catheter

 

DIAGNOSIS

An elevated blood level of a substance called D dimer.

Venography,an X-ray creates an image of the veins in your legs and feet, to look for clots

However, less invasive methods of diagnosis, such as ultrasound, can usually confirm the diagnosis
