Abstract

Several authors have demonstrated that prophylactically inserted inferior vena cava filters have decreased pulmonary thromboembolic complications in selected high-risk trauma patients. Guidewire-related mishaps are potential complications of inferior vena cava filters and are likely underreported. The authors present two cases and review strategies to prevent these complications.
