The article focuses on the efficacy of the process of blocking the inferior vena cava to keep pulmonary embolization from the legs. There are about 900 research papers which concentrated on the literature search on different combinations of venous caval interruption and filters are conducted. Key information regarding the randomized trials are also presented.
