IVC Filter Lawsuits

Former recipients of retrievable IVC filters – devices designed to capture blood clots before they enter the lungs – filed legal claims against manufacturers for poor design, manufacturing and failing to warn of risks. Faulty filters punctured veins, fractured and migrated to other parts of the body causing complications

IVC Filter lawsuits are currently being filed

In conclusion, the IVC filter products are known to break apart (fracture), move, puncture, and result in significant retrieval complications. Perforation (puncturing) of important organs (such as the heart and lungs) is frequent in cases where an IVC filter has broken, fractured, and/or migrated (moved). Retrieval of these filters is often unsuccessful, requiring multiple surgeries.
