Predicting the Safety and Effectiveness of Inferior Vena Cava Filters (PRESERVE)

Trial Purpose and Description

The overall goal is to characterize the current practice of IVC filter placement, including the indications, filter type, frequency and success of filter removal, safety of placement initially and in the long term, including filter mechanical stability and caval patency, and the frequency of subsequent episodes of PE and recurrence of DVT. The first steps are to identify the characteristics of use in a broad range of clinical practice settings in the US.
