IVC Filter Placement and RemovalIVC Filter Placement and Removal

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are designed to trap blood clots and keep them from traveling from the leg veins to the lungs. They may be temporary or permanent. During a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure, the filter is placed through a catheter into the IVC, a large vein in the abdomen. Temporary IVC filters can be removed when there is no longer a risk of blood clot fragments traveling to the lungs. During the removal procedure, a special catheter is used to grasp the filter and withdraw it from the body.

Venous and Arterial ThrombolysisVenous and Arterial Thrombolysis

Sometimes, swelling or pain in the body can be caused by clots in the venous or arterial systems. To treat this problem, we use thrombolysis, a minimally invasive treatment used to dissolve clots from arteries and veins. A catheter (small tube) is navigated to the area of the clot and clot-busting drugs are infused in the vessel to dissolve the clot. Other devices may also be used to break up and remove the clots. Stents may be implanted to prevent more clots from developing in the future.

Venous StenosisVenous Stenosis

Venous stenosis can manifest with swelling, pain, and superficial varicosities. In SVC, IVC, and lower extremity veins, venous stenosis is due to intimal hyperplasia and fibrosis secondary to placement of central venous catheters, pacemaker leads, hemodialysis catheters, prior radiation, trauma, or extrinsic compression by musculoskeletal structures. Venous stenosis is often treated with angioplasty and stenting, if necessary.
