Formatted abstract
Venous thromboembolism is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in obstetrics. Management with anticoagulation can be problematic, especially peripartum. We report the successful placement and retrieval of an inferior vena cava filter as prophylaxis for peripartum pulmonary embolism in a woman with a large, proximal, deep venous thrombosis at term.
