Bedside placement of inferior vena cava filters by using transabdominal duplex ultrasonography and intravascular ultrasound imaging

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Bedside placement of inferior vena cava filters by using either transabdominal duplex ultrasonography or intravascular ultrasonography (IVUS) has been shown to be safe and effective. We review techniques for bedside filter placement with transabdominal duplex ultrasonography, IVUS with dual venous access, and IVUS with single venous access. Transabdominal duplex ultrasonography and IVUS remain our preferred techniques for filter placement when feasible, especially in critically ill and immobilized patients.
