PMID:  8808974     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the only known case of intracardiac vena cava filter migration resulting in valvular dysfunction. Echocardiographic evaluation documented the filter stenting open the tricuspid valve, with wide-open regurgitation. This case, as well as 22 cases of filter migration reported in the English literature, are used as a background to review prevention and treatment strategies.
