Abstract

The retrievable type of inferior vena cava filter has been widely used to prevent pulmonary thromboembolism in patients with deep vein thrombosis and contraindication of anticoagulation. Physicians make considerable efforts to remove the filter according to the manufacturer and US Food and Drug Administration safety advisory recommendation. However, forced filter retrieval might cause vascular injury within 3 weeks. Herein, we report pathologic and angiographic findings to suggest filter associated vascular injury during forced retrieval just within recommended period in a patient with deep vein thrombosis.
