IVC Filters

Have you or a loved one suffered injuries due to an IVC Filter implant?

Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filters are tiny medical devices implanted in a patient’s vein to help keep dangerous blood clots from traveling to the lungs, heart, or brain.
The filters are surgically inserted into the largest vein in the human body, the Inferior Vena Cava. They are designed to trap blood clots before they reach a patient’s vital organs. The filters can be implanted permanently or temporarily.

While IVC filters are meant to protect patients from potentially deadly blood clots, they are known to cause health complications that may also be life-threatening. For this reason, many patients and their families have filed lawsuits against the manufacturers of these defective and harmful medical devices.

Deadly Complications From IVC Filters

The most common and potentially deadly risks associated with IVC filters include:
Device Migration.Over time, filters can dislodge from their original location and float freely through a patient’s bloodstream before becoming lodged again in a life-threatening location, such as a patient’s heart, lungs or brain.

Filter Breakage.

While the entire IVC filter may not become dislodged, certain portions of the device can break away and become caught inside a patient’s organs, which can cause damage and eventually death due to blocked or compromised blood flow.

Filter Perforation.

It is not uncommon for some IVC filters to poke through the walls of the Inferior Vena Cava and allow blood to leak out into a patient’s abdominal cavity. This can result in severe blood loss and death from internal bleeding.

Pulmonary Embolism.

Many IVC filters are ineffective and do not stop potentially fatal blood clots from travelling to patients’ lungs. Blood clots that become lodged in a patient’s lungs are known as pulmonary embolisms, and they are often fatal.
