We report a patient who received a retrievable G2 filter and developed inferior vena cava perforations in multiple locations, including penetration of one of the prongs inside the aortic lumen. Furthermore, we conducted an extensive literature review of similar cases to describe the clinical presentation, aortic pathology, radiologic findings, treatment, and outcomes related to this complication.
