Recurrent pulmonary embolism in pregnancy managed with the Greenfield vena caval filter



Recurrent pulmonary embolism in pregnancy managed with the Greenfield vena caval filter



International Journal of Gynaecology and Obstetrics: the Official Organ of the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics 33(3): 275-278



Recurrent embolisation from venous thrombosis despite anticoagulation, in pregnancy, constitutes a major diagnostic and management problem. We present just such a patient who was managed with a Greenfield vena caval filter, which enabled her pregnancy to continue, resulting in a vaginal delivery of a healthy female infant at 38 weeks gestation.
