ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Retrieval of a Gunther Tulip Vena Cava Filter

History: Patient had placement of a Gunther Tulip Retrievable inferior vena cava filter placed three weeks prior for a large thrombus within the infrarenal inferior vena cava, extending into the left common iliac vein temporarily for a surgical procedure, now to be removed and patient to be anticoagulated.

Findings: Multiple images from fluoroscopy during the angiographic procedure demonstrates: The presence of the Gunther Tulip IVC filter, with the characteristic small loop at the end which facilitates retrieval. The IVC filter firmly engaged with the retrieval loop system. The filter being drawn into the larger coaxial retrieval sheath system. The filter removed, with the outer coaxial retrieval sheath remaining in the IVC. Cavagram performed through the sheath demonstrating the still-present eccentric filling defect in the infrarenal IVC.
