ARKANSAS IVC FILTER INJURY ATTORNEYS
Have You Or A Loved One Suffered Complications After Receiving An IVC Filter?
IVC filters are wire mesh devices implanted in the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC)—the main vessel returning blood from the lower body to the heart. Doctors use such filters on patients who cannot take blood thinners to prevent blood clots from migrating to the lungs (pulmonary embolism).
Are There Side Effects from IVC Filters? Is There A Risk Of Injury?
In 2010—after thousands of reports citing severe adverse effects—the FDA released a safety communication warning concerning IVC filters. In 2014, updated communications noted the following serious side effects:
- Severe chest pain
- Pulmonary Embolism
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Fracture of the filter
- Perforation or puncture
C. R. Bard™, Cook Medical™, and Johnson & Johnson™ all manufactured defective IVC blood clot filters that can cause serious injuries due to tilting, fracturing, or migration to the heart and lungs.
