Before the development of the inferior vena cava (IVC) filter, various techniques of IVC interruption were described for the management of patients at high risk for thromboembolic events, and for whom anticoagulation was either inadequate or contraindicated. In this report, we describe the enteric migration of a Miles IVC clip, occurring 27 years after IVC interruption. This previously undescribed complication and the patient's prolonged follow-up period render this case of significant interest.
