About Vena Cava Filters
The clot in patients with deep vein thrombosis can sometimes break away and travel to the brain or lungs causing a stroke or pulmonary embolism respectively. A vena cava filter is a special device that prevents the movement of clots.
It is large enough to allow blood and small particles to pass through but small enough to block clots. We can insert a filter for you at our vein center in Jackson Heights. A vena cava filter will trap the clot fragments and prevent them from causing severe complications and even death. Vena cava filters are particularly suitable for high risk patients. They are also suitable for patients that cannot take anticoagulants such as warfarin for various reasons.
There is a variety of vena cava filters and your Jackson Heights cardiologist will select the most appropriate one for your condition. Some filters are permanent. Newer types are removable.
The insertion of a vena cava filter is a relatively safe and painless procedure. Your heart doctor in Jackson Heights will discuss the specific risks and potential benefits with you. During the consultation with your heart doctor it is important that you inform him/her of any medications you are taking as well as any conditions you suffer from. You may be advised to discontinue certain medications for a few days before the procedure. Additionally, you may be required to undergo basic pre-procedural tests to ensure the safety of the entire procedure.
