Event Description

Per a report from computed tomography; ¿an inferior vena cava filter is present. The proximal tip of the filter is at the level of the midportion of the left renal vein junction with the ivc and at the caudal aspect of the right renal veins junction with the ivc. The ivc caudal to the renal veins is very small diameter, particularly along the course of the inferior vena cava filter. Without contrast i cannot exclude that portion of the inferior vena cava being thrombosed or occluded. The tip of the ivc see filter does not appear to be embedded in the wall the small luminal diameter ivc. The right lateral and the posterior leg to the ivc filter appear to extend through the walls of the inferior vena cava but i see no evidence of hemorrhage or hematoma about the inferior vena cava. Inferior vena cava at the level the junction of the iliac veins appears more normal in diameter. ¿.
