IVC filter increases 30-day mortality in VTE with contraindication to anticoagulation

Patients with venous thromboembolism and a contraindication to anticoagulation who received an inferior vena cava filter had a significantly increased risk for 30-day mortality after adjustment for various factors, including immortal time bias, according to recently published data.
In this comparative effectiveness, retrospective cohort study, the researchers used the State Inpatient Database and the State Emergency Database from hospitals in California (2005-2011), Florida (2005- 2013) and New York (2005-2012) to evaluate the link between IVC filter placement and 30-day mortality.
