Permanent Inferior Vena Cava Filters Offer Greater Expected Patient Utility at Lower Predicted Cost.

J Vasc Surg Venous Lymphat Disord 2020 Apr 23. Epub 2020 Apr 23.

Division of Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina.

Objective: Retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filters were first approved for use in the United States in 2003 in order to address long-term complications of migration, thrombosis, fracture, and perforation observed with permanent IVC filter implantation. Although FDA approval of retrievable IVC filters includes permanent implantation, the incidence of complications from long-term implantation appears to be greater than reported with existing permanent IVC filters, while only a small fraction of such retrievable IVC filters are ever retrieved. The purpose of this study was to determine the threshold retrieval rate at which the use of retrievable IVC filters can be justified. Read More

Popliteal Access in the Supine Position for Endovenous Management of Deep Vein Thrombosis.

EJVES Short Rep 2020 13;46:5-8. Epub 2019 Jun 13.

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, Ankara University School of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Introduction: The preferred venous access site for percutaneous management of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is the popliteal vein, with the patient in the prone position. Owing to the need for additional venous access, including the jugular or femoral veins, popliteal access in the prone position requires supine repositioning of the patient. A technique for puncturing the popliteal vein in the supine position is proposed, which allows for additional venous access in the same position in patients with DVT. Read More

[Use of 'Korona' cava filter in oncological patients].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2019 ;25(4):139-145

National Medical Research Centre of Oncology named after N.N. Blokhin under the RF Ministry of Public Health, Moscow, Russia.

Using the 'Korona' cava filter in a total of 1345 oncological patients revealed regularity of a change in the shape of the inferior vena cava at the level of implantation. This made it feasible to determine one of the causes of long-term complications following implantation of other models of cava filters. The absence of clinically significant complications in the remote period after using this model of cava filter made it possible to implant it for a longer period, which is of special importance in oncological patients.
