Recently, the JAMA (The Journal of the American Medical Association) published an article concerning the use of IVC filters
for pulmonary embolism patients. Soon, many doctors questioned the findings of the report. 200 patients were studied using blood thinners along with IVC filters. There were comparative studies with a group of patients who received the blood thinner drugs alone. After three months of follow up visits, they found that the IVC filter patients suffered double the amount of recurring pulmonary embolisms.
