Double inferior vena cava

What is the treatment for double inferior vena cava?

Double inferior vena cava does not have a specified treatment, as this condition does not cause any clinical symptoms. Individuals with a double inferior vena cava who need surgery for other medical reasons may be treated more cautiously or in a different manner to prevent injury to the additional inferior vena cava. Treatment may also differ for people who develop a blood clot and need an inferior vena cava filter to prevent a pulmonary embolism. In these cases, a person with double inferior vena cava usually requires the placement of two filters, one in each vein.
