IVC Filters

About IVC Filters »

Retrievable Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters are used to prevent blood clots from migrating to the heart, lungs and other vital organs. The IVC is the largest vein in the body and is responsible for transporting blood from the body back to the heart. If a blood clot reaches the heart it can result in a heart attack, pulmonary embolism or other serious health issues. The IVC filter is implanted in the IVC to catch these clots before reaching the heart.

Complications »

An IVC Filter is made up of several legs or “struts”. These struts have been known to fracture and are then free to move through the blood vessels. The filters themselves can also migrate from their original placement without fracturing. Both fracture and migration can result in serious complications including embolism, organ and blood vessel perforation, and heart attack.

IVC Filters – Investigation of Injuries »

We are currently investigating reports of injuries or serious complications related to the migration and/or fracture of implanted IVC filters. IVC filters are implanted in the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) in order to prevent blood clots from reaching the heart. According to documented reports, patients have experienced serious complications when the metal filter fractures or migrates from its original position in the IVC. If you or a loved one has experienced injuries or complications following implantation of an IVC filter, please send us your contact information and we will respond promptly.
