This case illustrates management of a patient with disabling symptoms from Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filter occlusion. Inferior vena cava obstruction from organized thrombus and fibrosis can lead to severe bilateral lower extremity edema despite chronic anticoagulation therapy. Complete Endovascular revascularization with self-expanding stents is a feasible and attractive treatment option with remarkable clinical response.
