Inferior vena cava filters are considered the therapeutic modality for treatment of deep venous thrombosis in patients who are not candidates for anticoagulation therapy. Filter migration to the heart is a rare but serious complication. In this report we present two cases of Inferior vena cava filters that migrated to the heart and how they were managed.
