This prospective, multicenter, single-arm clinical study will further evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Cook's permanent and retrievable inferior vena cava (IVC) filters (specifical...
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that the Günther Tulip Vena Cava Filter can be removed after a period of implantation, when implanted in patients for the prevention of...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the Crux Vena Cava Filter System is safe and effective in preventing pulmonary embolism.
To establish the clinical safety and efficacy of the VenaTech® Retrievable Vena Cava Filter
This is an open label, non-randomized, prospective, multicenter study.
Public awareness of inferior vena cava (IVC) filter-related controversies has been elevated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) safety communication in 2010.
Balloon angioplasty and stenting have increasingly been gaining widespread application for treatment of post-thrombotic alterations in the system of the vena cava. Endovascular ultrasonographic examin...
Inferior vena cava filters are indicated in patients with venous thromboembolic disease in whom anticoagulation is a contraindication. This case highlights the importance of inferior vena cava filter ...
Inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) are indicated for therapeutic and prophylactic treatment of venous thromboembolism in patients where anti-coagulation has failed or is contraindicated. Retrievable I...
: The indications for the use of an inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) in the context of deep venous thrombosis to prevent pulmonary embolism remain controversial. Despite wide use in clinical practice,...
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.
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.
An operation for the continuous emptying of ascitic fluid into the venous system. Fluid removal is based on intraperitoneal and intrathoracic superior vena cava pressure differentials and is performed via a pressure-sensitive one-way valve connected to a tube traversing the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall to the neck where it enters the internal jugular vein and terminates in the superior vena cava. It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.
The small mass of modified cardiac muscle fibers located at the junction of the superior vena cava (VENA CAVA, SUPERIOR) and right atrium. Contraction impulses probably start in this node, spread over the atrium (HEART ATRIUM) and are then transmitted by the atrioventricular bundle (BUNDLE OF HIS) to the ventricle (HEART VENTRICLE).
