    Procedure performed: Inferior vena cava filter implantation under
    fluoroscopy guidance.

    Protocol: After the patient was brought to the interventional radiology
    suite. The right jugular area was prepped and draped in the usual
    sterile fashion under ultrasonic guidance. The right jugular vein was
    identified and subsequently lidocaine was infiltrated and access was
    obtained of the right jugular vein by a micropuncture needle and then
    subsequently a guidewire was advanced and was replaced with an 8 French
    dilator. J-wire was advanced and subsequently and a 12 French sheath
    was placed. The dilator was removed. The tip was advanced to below the
    renal vein level. Imaging was obtained using contrast and the right and
    left renal veins are identified. The placement was guided by presence
    of a rule that identified the appropriate site. Subsequently, the filter
    was deployed and accurate positioning was confirmed with subsequent
    thinning, following which the entire assembly was removed. No
    complications occurred. The patient tolerated the procedure well.
    Please note that 2 mg of intravenous Versed was given.
