Abstract

With an in vitro model of the inferior vena cava, it was demonstrated that slight tension on the introducer during quick release of the jugular Günther Tulip filter led to less tilting of the filter compared with the technique recommended by the manufacturer. This technique may be useful to minimize significant filter tilting that may be associated with decreased filtration efficiency, and difficulty or impossibility of future filter retrieval.
