ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: IVC Filter Migration

History: History (can include gestational age, or age in days, weeks, months): 55 yo white female presented with shortness of breath 4 days after she underwent arthroscopic knee surgery. She was diagnosed with a PE at that time. As her PE developed in the setting of adequate anticoagulation (INR of 3.9) she had an IVC filter placed as treatment of recurrent PE. The day after the filter was placed she developed a ventricular arrhythmia and became hypoxic. She was subsequently transferred to WNC and admitted. On admission her vital signs were stable and she was without arrhythmias or shortness of breath.

Findings: Image Findings: 1. Migration of Greenfield filter to tricuspid valve 2. Large Left Pleural effusion.

Ddx: Differential Diagnosis for these findings in this case: IVC Filter migration

Exam: Physical Exam and Laboratory: T 38 C, HR 77, BP 104/70, RR 15 Gen: Pt resting comfortably, but appears mildly SOB. Resp: CTAB, shallow breathing. CV: RRR, normal S1 and S2 EKG: NSR ABG: PaO2 69, PaCO2 38.0, pH 7.44, HCO3 38.0, O2 sat 99.3, CO 27.5
