Abstract

The present work describes the preliminary results of the use of a novel technique for the removal of tilted and apex-embedded Recovery, G2, G2 Express, and Eclipse inferior vena cava filters. A retrospective review was performed of 33 filters removed in 32 patients by using the described modified loop snare technique. All filters were successfully removed with the use of the technique. The average duration of filter implantation for the devices removed with the technique was 556 days (range, 11-2,437 d; median, 268 d). No filter fractures occurred related to the removal technique. No procedure-related complications occurred.
