In 2006 I had a filter installed in my vena cava because of blood clot issues. I now have a kidney problem and the surgeon needs know what material the filter is to determine the method of treatment. can you help with this matter ?
Thanks for the query
There are different types of meshes or filters which can be put. It is difficult to tell which one is uses on u. I suggest you see the discharge summary, it will normally be mentioned on it or te hospital bill while discharging after the mesh repair
Have a healthy livig
