Abstract: Although inferior vena cava filters (IVCFs) reduced the incidence of PE in a randomized controlled trial (RCT), patients treated with IVCFs and anticoagulation with unfractionated heparin or low-molecular- weight heparin had a greater risk of developing recurrent DVT than patients treated with anticoagulation alone (SOR: B, 1 RCT).
