During the last four years, we have attempted 249 insertions of the Greenfield inferior vena cava filter using the right internal jugular vein. This approach was impossible in 31 patients (12.5%). Our first alternative was the insertion of the filter through the venous junction between the right internal jugular and right subclavian veins. If this latter technique was not possible we attempted the insertion of the Greenfield filter through the left internal jugular vein before using the retrograde femoral route which is associated with high morbidity. By these techniques we have been able to reduce the number of patients in whom it is impossible to achieve mechanical endocaval partial interruption to 2.4%.
