What Is IVC Filter Retrieval?
IVC Filter Retrieval is a minimally invasive procedure that allows for the safe removal of Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters. IVC filters are small, cage-like devices implanted in the vena cava, the body's largest vein, to capture blood clots and prevent pulmonary embolism. They play a critical role in preventing potentially life-threatening pulmonary embolisms, especially in patients at risk of blood clots. However, once the risk has subsided or the clotting issue has been resolved, it is crucial to consider removing the IVC filter to avoid long-term complications. Our highly skilled vascular surgical team, specializes in IVC filter retrieval, ensuring a safe and efficient procedure that prioritizes patient comfort and well-being.
