IVC Filters

Since the introduction of the IVC filter in 2005, the FDA has received roughly one thousand adverse reports involving these filters. Specifically, it was reported that the IVC filters fragment and embolize in the body. IVC filter complications are very serious and can be life threatening.

Research of these devices and the reports made by physicians and consumers has caused the FDA to urge physicians who advise their patients to use an IVC filter to consider the risk and benefits for individual patients instead of simply choosing the IVC for all patients who are ineligible for anticoagulation therapy, and to remove the device once the symptoms have diminished.

IVC Filters

There are currently several Bard IVC filter class action lawsuits pending against C.R. Bard, the manufacturer of the Bard Recovery, G2, and G2 Express IVC filters. If you were injured by these devices, you may still have time to join the class action or file an individual personal injury lawsuit.

The Bard IVC filter is a medical device that is implanted in the inferior vena cava, which is a blood vessel between the heart and lungs. The wire filter is designed to catch blood clots before they are pumped into the lungs and cause a pulmonary embolism. Unfortunately, the IVC filter rarely reduces mortality for pulmonary embolism patients, and it is associated with numerous life-threatening side effects — including perforation of the heart or lungs, filter fracture, and more.
