IVC Filter Insertions and Removals

IVC Filter Insertions and Removals

Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters are designed to trap blood clots and keep them from traveling from the leg veins to the lungs. They may be temporary or permanent. During a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure, the filter is placed through a catheter into the IVC, a large vein in the abdomen. Temporary IVC filters can be removed when there is no longer a risk of blood clot fragments traveling to the lungs. During the removal procedure, a special catheter is used to grasp the filter and withdraw it from the body.


Ports

Ports

A port is a small reservoir device that is implanted under the skin and provides access to your veins. The port can stay in place permanently, if necessary. Ports are implanted expertly and painlessly at BVC under ultrasound and x-ray guidance. Two incisions are made, a small one near the collarbone and a larger incision usually a few inches below the first incision where a reservoir pocket is formed. Both of these incisions are sewn with dissolvable sutures. When the port is accessed, a special needle is placed through the skin into the reservoir. A catheter under the skin connects the reservoir to a large vein, usually in the chest. This allows you to receive medication such as chemotherapeutic treatments, blood, or nutrition or to have lab samples taken.
