(b) Following puncture of the common femoral veins, a bilateral EKOS device was placed and 0.5 mg/hr tPA was infused for 8 hours from each groin. (c) Postvenogram demonstrates complete resolution of the thrombus with minimal thrombus at the apex of the IVC filter. This filter was subsequently removed.
