IVC Filters: Society of Interventional Radiology Leads in Patient Care, Safety, Research
Date:11/28/2011

number of subjects lost to follow-up," said Ray, an interventional radiologist at the University of Colorado Denver in Aurora.

SIR has already-established guidelines—and recently published quality improvement guidelines—for IVC filter placement and clinical care that closely parallel current FDA recommendations. The society strongly urges close communication between doctor and patient and notes that the interventional radiologist—part of the team of physicians involved in the management of this disease process for any given patient—is committed to patient safety above all else.

SIR encourages individuals with IVC filters to talk to their interventional radiologists and their other doctors about any concerns or questions. Those with filters should always discuss with their doctors whether and when filter removal is an option. It should also be noted that even the filters that have the option to be removed may be left in place permanently and the filters on the market have FDA approval for permanent placement.

The Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology has published the below IVC filter-related articles.

  • "A Method for Following Patients With Retrievable Inferior Vena Cava Filters: Results and Lessons Learned From the First 1,100 Patients"
  • "Quality Improvement Guidelines for the Performance of Inferior Vena Cava Filter Placement for the Prevention of Pulmonary Embolism" (Covers all facets of IVC filter placement, including permanent and temporary, defining procedural success and addressing complications, such as filter movement, loss of the filter's structural integrity and insertion problems)
  • "Incidence and Management of Inferior Vena Cava Filter Thrombus Detected at Time of Filter Retrieval"
  • "A Systematic Review of the Use of Retrievable Inferior Vena Cava Filters"
  • "CT Fluoroscopy–Guided Placement of Inferior Vena Cava Filters: Feasibility
