The researchers found that early placement of a vena cava filter
did not result in a significantly lower incidence of symptomatic pulmonary embolism or death versus no filter placement (13.9 versus 14.4 percent; hazard ratio, 0.99; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.51 to 1.94; P = 0.98).

Pretermination venography and CT/ CT venography of the control device, the OptEase Retrievable Vena Cava Filter

Until the PRESERVE trial provides long-term data on safety and efficacy of the IVC filters (ALN, Option Elite Retrievable, VenaTech LP, Cook Gunther Tulip, Bard DENALI, and Cordis OptEase Retrievable vena cava filter
), case reports like these should alert clinicians to think about hemopericardium as a cause of cardiac tamponade and cardiogenic shock in a patient with a history of an IVC filter placement.
