Studies indicate that IVC Filters implanted in patients can break or fracture and enter the patient's blood stream. These metal fractures can then enter vital organs such as the heart or lungs and cause serious injury and in some cases death. The FDA has issued warnings alerting both patients and doctors of this serious issue. The FDA advises that IVC filters be removed as soon as possible to prevent these events from occurring. There have been multiple lawsuits filed over IVC filters for failure to warn of these dangerous IVC Filter side effects. In addition to these serious injuries other IVC filter side effects include:
In the United States, at least 100,000 people have been implanted with IVC devices. Some patients have not had these potentially deadly devices removed for years. IVC filters are designed to catch blood clots from forming and entering the lungs. There are studies that indicate every 1 in 4 devices will fracture and enter the blood stream. There have been both IVC filter class action lawsuits and IVC Filter MDLs created to try to help victims of IVC side effects.
