Thromboembolic diseases during pregnancy are usually managed by conventional anticoagulation and patients are at high risk of pulmonary embolism. Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters can be used in cases of documented pulmonary embolism (PE) where anticoagulation is contraindicated or has failed. In our case the patient was diagnosed as having ...

Vena cava filters have been used for the prevention of pulmonary embolism in patients with venous thromboembolism since the 1930s. Historically, vena cava filters were used in patients with either a contraindication to or a complication of systemic anticoagulation or in those with recurrent pulmonary embolism despite adequate anticoagulation. However, ...
