Abstract

Saddle pulmonary embolisms are life threatening and are uncommon after IVC filter placement. Management of PE is difficult, and emergent thrombolysis is sometimes the only option left if the patient is hemodynamically unstable. We present a rare case of an acute saddle pulmonary embolism in a patient with an intact infrarenal IVC filter presenting with hemodynamic instability.
