Abstract


Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis, a type of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), is a relatively rare and poorly known disease compared to lower extremity DVT. We present a case of a 68-year-old woman with abdominal pain and mild lower leg swelling due to IVC thrombosis extending from the common iliac vein to the infrahepatic IVC. The thrombus was removed using a 14-mm Niti-S stent (Taewoong Medical, Korea) inserted via the right internal jugular vein. The stent was partially deployed and gently advanced to cover the thrombus, and then retracted through a vascular sheath capturing the thrombus. This case presents a therapeutic approach for the treatment of IVC thrombosis using a half-deployed stent as a filter and a basket. Follow-up evaluation after 5 years revealed a patent IVC and common iliac vein.
