There have been lawsuits filed against Cook Group Inc. and C.R. Bard over IVC filters around the country. These devices are designed to prevent blood clots from migrating into the lungs which could prove fatal. However these lawsuits allege that the IVC filters are in fact defective. Plaintiffs cite studies that say these IVC filters can fracture in the body when left a extended period of time. When these IVC filters spinter, they go through the blood stream and can enter vital organs and in some cases the patients die. In fact the Cardiovascular Interventional Radiology said that 100% of the IVC Filters made by Cook perforated the a study participant’s venal wall after 70 days of implantation. There are health advocates that are calling for a full IVC filter FDA Recall. The FDA did suggest that IVC filter should be removed after 50 days of implementation at the very least. There have been some reports that Bard has already begun settling IVC filter lawsuits. There have been few details on the results of those IVC filter lawsuit settlements.
There has already been a long history the litigation surrounding these IVC Filter lawsuits. C.R. Bard has tried to get lawsuit dismissed a number of occasions. There is now a creation of IVC Filter MDL in Southern Indiana. There have been reports of over a thousand IVC Filter lawsuits against Bard.
