Abstract

Intracardiac migration is a rare complication of inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) that poses a significant risk to patients. Both endovascular and surgical options exist, although only a few endovascular options are described in the literature. This brief report describes the endovascular approach used to successfully remove a TrapEase IVCF from the right atrium in a single patient. A brief review of the literature is also provided.
