Abstract

A woman with multiple recurrent pulmonary emboli and iatrogenic inferior vena cava perforation caused by the Hunter-Sessions introducer was treated successfully by placement of a Hunter-Sessions balloon to control the ensuing retroperitoneal hemorrhage and interrupt the inferior vena cava. Full anticoagulation therapy was continued throughout the operation and postoperatively.
