IVC filter retrieval

Comments : 0 Author: A Prof S Lyon Category : General

Melbourne Endovascular adds the "Jaws of life " bronchial endoscopy retrieval set, now listed for IVC filter retrieval.

 

" This means that we can now retrieve close to 100% of IVC filters that have been present for less than 12 months"

Images are of our first case with this retrieval device. This is a young patient who had attempted retrievals twice at other institutions. Retrieval was successful for this 9 month old filter using the forceps, with patient returning back to her home town the following day.
