I.V.C Filter Placement

Inferior Vena Cava Filter is a small device that prevents blood clots to reach the lungs. An IVC is the largest vein in the center of the body.

Veins are the blood vessels that carry oxygen-poor blood back to the heart. Arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the entire body. The clots are formed due to thickening of the blood. This can lead to severe diseases like DVT and Pulmonary Embolism. The IVC Filter is a paper-thin flexible tube inserted in the IVC. This filter seizes the blood clots and restricts them to reach the lungs thus preventing Pulmonary Embolism.
