Abstract

Dislodgement of a Greenfield filter in the right atrium is one of the most serious complications of this procedure. Retrieval of such a misplaced filter may require surgical intervention by means of cardiopulmonary bypass surgery, which is very hazardous in these often severely ill patients. We describe two cases in which the filter became partially dislodged from its carrier in the right atrium. We were able to successfully reposition the filter by using a tip deflection wire, thereby obviating the need for an open cardiac procedure.
