Several studies have shown that approximately 80% to 85% of optional IVC filters are never retrieved. The successful removal of retrievable filters requires diligent patient follow-up and interdepartmental cooperation, and even so, successful removal is not always possible. American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) guidelines for IVCF placement indications advocates a close, structured follow-up of retrievable IVCFs to improve filter retrieval rates.
Using a retrieval algorithm and pathway program, a score will trigger a secure email and text messages sent to both physician and patient at different timelines, for follow up so as to retrieve filter placed.
