The patients were a 38-year-old woman with congenital protein C deficiency, and a 67-year-old man cancer patient receiving central venous nutrition through the internal jugular vein. The thrombi in both cases were detected during CT and one case was already suffering from pulmonary thromboembolism. For both cases, from the femoral vein we used the Gunter inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) for the cervical approach (made by Cook Co.) before beginning anticoagulation and we were able to take it out within two weeks. Because there is a report that deep vein thrombosis increases with long-term use of IVCF, in this case where the superior vena cava was affected. We thought we might be able to relieve the superior vena cava syndrome by removing the IVCF. Internal jugular vein and subclavian vein-related occlusion is not rare, in common practice, when thrombus captured in a catheter is introduced inadvertently. Treatment for this has not yet been established.
