The endovascular deployment of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters is a clinical treatment for the prevention of pulmonary embolism due to deep vein thrombosis. In addition, IVC filters are used routinely for prophylactic purposes in patients who are at high risk of developing pulmonary embolism, e.g., trauma patients. There are approximately eight IVC filters available in the U.S., each with a unique design.
