We present the case of a patient with retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filter-related pseudoaneurysms of the infrarenal aorta and right renal artery, with associated erosion into the duodenal wall. The patient was seen 10 months following multiorgan trauma and placement of a prophylactic retrievable IVC filter (R-IVCF). Management required autogenous aortic reconstruction, caval repair, and subsequent right nephrectomy. This case demonstrates that R-IVCFs may be associated with significant risks, which is concerning, as a majority of prophylactic R-IVCFs placed after multisystem trauma are not removed.
