An IVC filter is a small metal device designed to stop blood clots. Doctors implant IVC Filters into the patient’s vena cava, a large vein that carries deoxygenated blood into the heart. Unfortunately, patients and physicians nationwide quickly realized many IVC Filters were defective. Their concerns were confirmed when the FDA reported clinical studies linking IVC Filters to serious side effects causing serious injuries and even death.
The FDA continued issuing warnings to doctors demanding they remove the IVC filters once the danger of the blood cloth had passed. Things got worse when patients and their doctors across the country began reporting that filters were breaking free, traveling through the body, and causing puncture wounds and internal bleeding.
Victims nationwide were seriously injured by the fall brands of Filters:
- G2 Express filter
- Bard G2 filter
- Cook Celect filter
- Boston Scientific Greenfield filter
