Abstract

A 63-years-old female developed shock after cardiac myxoma excision. Echocardiography identified inferior vena cava (IVC) stenosis and re-intervention with atrial and septal patch augmentation was attempted. The patient maintained hemodynamic instability as well as high IVC gradient and intraluminal thrombus. IVC percutaneous stenting was achieved and enabled full hemodynamic recovery.
