A 66-year-old Asian female diagnosed with an occupied mass of the inferior vena cava (IVC) case with extension to the right atrium, bilateral renal vasculature, and venae iliaca communis, which caused severe thrombocytopenia and severe liver and kidney dysfunction. The postoperative pathological diagnosis was high-grade undifferentiated intimal sarcoma. There have been less than 10 cases of venous undifferentiated intimal sarcomas reported in the literature, three of which occurred in the IVC. Unfortunately, the patient died of multiple organ failure in the intensive care unit postoperatively.

Renal angiomyolipoma without local invasion is usually considered benign entity, however, it may extend into the renal vein or the inferior vena cava. Renal angiomyolipoma with venous extension should...
In recent years, retrievable inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) have been increasingly used to prevent pulmonary embolism. However, these IVCFs are occasionally difficult to retrieve, and their long-t...
First, the inferior vena cava dilatation index (DIVC) was measured by ultrasound, and then the reliability of DIVC as an indicator to predict volume responsiveness in patients undergoing mechanical ve...
A 73-year-old female presented with cardiogenic shock secondary to hemopericardium and cardiac tamponade. Imaging revealed two fractured legs of an inferior vena cava filter, with one leg within the a...
A megacava (vena cava with a diameter of 28 mm or greater) requires a particular filter to avoid migration. However, caval morphologies are variable. As the inferior vena cava (IVC) usually adopts a ...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate patients with inferior vena cava (IVC)thrombosis in terms of etiology, clinical course and prognosis during long-term follow-up. Patients with isola...

CAVA-ADHF is designed as a prospective, randomized, controlled, patient-blinded, multicenter, parallel-group trial. The objective is to test whether evaluation of the inferior vena cava di...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Crux Vena Cava Filter System is safe and effective in preventing pulmonary embolism.
The investigation is designed to verify that clinical use of the vena cava filter does not raise new questions of safety or effectiveness compared to currently-marketed permanent filters.
Mechanical devices inserted in the inferior vena cava that prevent the migration of blood clots from deep venous thrombosis of the leg.
A vein which arises from the right ascending lumbar vein or the vena cava, enters the thorax through the aortic orifice in the diaphragm, and terminates in the superior vena cava.
The venous trunk which receives blood from the lower extremities and from the pelvic and abdominal organs.
A rare congenital abnormality resulting in the URETER passing dorsal to and being obstructed by the INFERIOR VENA CAVA.
A condition that occurs when the obstruction of the thin-walled SUPERIOR VENA CAVA interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the RIGHT ATRIUM. Obstruction can be caused by NEOPLASMS; THROMBOSIS; ANEURYSM; or external compression. The syndrome is characterized by swelling and/or CYANOSIS of the face, neck, and upper arms.
