We report extensive thrombotic complications of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters that were placed for primary prophylaxis in 2 pediatric trauma patients with spinal cord injuries. Although thrombosis is a known common complication in adults with IVC filters, we were unable to find any reports in the literature of this complication in children. These cases highlight a significant problem with the use of prophylactic IVC filters that are not subsequently retrieved, particularly in young trauma patients with decades to live. The overall reported complications of IVC filters in the pediatric literature are also reviewed.
