Abstract

Patients may be denied the opportunity to have their inferior vena cava (IVC) filters removed because of a perception that retrievable filters that have been in place for a long period of time may be more technically difficult or hazardous to remove. A case report on the removal of a Günther Tulip filter that was implanted for a total of 3,006 days is presented. This case report adds to the literature that suggests that no time limits may exist after which many retrievable IVC filters can no longer be safely removed.
