Abstract

Migration and embolization of intravenously placed devices has been described previously with inferior vena cava (IVC) filters but not stents. While patients with intracardiac embolization of venous devices may be asymptomatic, we present a patient with symptomatic migration of an IVC stent to the heart and discuss the treatment considerations and decision-making involved.
