Study: Vena cava filters may not be needed in pulmonary embolism

Critical Care SmartBrief | May 01, 2015

Using a retrievable inferior vena cava filter with anticoagulation therapy did not reduce the risk that patients with severe acute pulmonary embolism would have a recurrence, compared with anticoagulation alone, French researchers wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Kenneth Lyn-Kew at National Jewish Health in Denver commented the study offers good evidence that using the filters is not necessary and likely will change the way he practices.
