Pulmonary embolism, for example, is a serious condition that occurs when a blood clot travels via the bloodstream from the veins deep in the legs into the lungs, making it difficult to breathe and potentially causing death. When a patient has already had one pulmonary embolism, doctors wish to prevent a recurrence. One means of prevention is a filter surgically placed in the inferior vena cava, the main vein in the body that leads from the legs to the heart. In theory, the filter allows normal blood flow to the heart and lungs while preventing clots from traveling to the vital organs.
