An Inferior Vena Cava Filter (IVC Filter) is a small metal cage-like device designed to prevent blood clots from traveling to the lungs. The Inferior Vena Cava is the largest vein in the human body. These filters are often placed in people who have experienced a traumatic incident and risk developing blood clots. There are both permanent and temporary IVC Filters available for implant on the market.
