Hundreds of lawsuits are pending against various IVC filter manufacturers across the United States in light of growing concerns about failures in these devices.

For example, citing several reports of adverse events and problems associated with a particular manufacturer’s IVC filters, the FDA has warned patients with those filters that they “should be referred for IVC filter removal” once the risk of embolism has subsided and as soon as the patient can tolerate the removal procedure. FDA Notice

ivc_filter_bannerIf you or a loved one has been implanted with an IVC filter, serious complications may result.  Some IVC filters are associated with a high rate of fracturing and fragmenting.  A fracture is when a piece of an IVC filter breaks off from the filter.  Filter fragments can then move through the body, presenting risks to vital organs such as the heart and lungs, among other complications.  Results of a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found fragment embolization, or migration to the heart or lungs, in 71% of fragmented filters.

Fracturing and fragmenting IVC filters pose life-threatening complications that can cause severe injuries, including sudden death.  Even if you have yet to suffer complications from your IVC filter, you may still have a claim against the manufacturer.
