Abstract

The inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement represents an excellent protection from significant pulmonary embolism in at-risk patients. Perforation of the wall of the IVC by components of caval filters is a recognized complication. We report a case of asymptomatic hydronephrosis caused by transcaval penetration of a Mobin-Uddin filter.
