Fatal complications after self-expandable metallic stent placement for inferior vena cava syndrome



Fatal complications after self-expandable metallic stent placement for inferior vena cava syndrome



Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology 26(4): 400-402



We present the case of a 71-year-old man with inferior vena cava syndrome due to metastatic lymph nodes from hepatocellular carcinoma with serious complications that were strongly suspected to result from rapid changes in hemodynamics after self-expandable metallic stent placement.
