A 42-year-old woman who had undergone multiple revisions of a bare-stent transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt was treated for in-stent stenosis by insertion of a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-covered stent. Immediately after revision with the covered stent, she developed inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis. The potential causes and implications of this complication are discussed.
