INTRODUCTION: Intravascular device migration and intrusion into the cardiac chambers is an extremely rare yet potentially lethal complication, often recognized late due to the low clinical suspicion. While an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter migration into the heart has been commonly described, the literature on peripheral stent embolization into the heart is limited. We present a patient in profound shock state, in whom point of care ultrasound revealed IVC stent in the right atrium.
