An inferior vena caval filter was percutaneously inserted to a patient due to recurrence of symptoms associated with thromboembolic disease despite effective doses of anticoagulant therapy. The patient had previously been hospitalized in our clinic with the diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis and recurrent pulmonary emboli secondary to the primary hypercoagulable state. Percutaneous vena caval filter placement appears to be an effective, safe and relatively easy and inexpensive method compared to the alternative surgical intervention. Indications and complications of this method were discussed.
