Vena Cava Filter Implantation

Vena Cava Filter Implantation is a well-established procedure in which a metal filter is placed in the vena cava to prevent the migration of blood clots to the lungs. The vena cava is the largest vein in the body which takes blood from the body back to the heart and lungs. This procedure is often used to treat a condition called deep vein thrombosis, in which blood blots develop in the legs and can potentially move to the lungs where they can be fatal. The vena cava filter is implanted into the vena cava under X-ray guidance in the cath lab.
