There has been the creation of a Bard IVC Filter MDL in Arizona. The IVC Filter litigation will be centralized under U.S. District Judge David G. Campbell. MDL's are created to centralize litigation and enable pretrial discovery and prevent redundant efforts. Usually following the creation of an MDL there will be bellweather trials to help both sides in the Filter litigation learn more about these lawsuits. There were reports that Bard has already settled some IVC lawsuits prior to the creation of this Bard IVC Filter MDL. Currently is believed there are 22 IVC filter lawsuits that are going into the IVC filter MDL. This comes after Bard has recieved hundreds of complaints regarding it's IVC filters for dangerous side effects. There are three brand of Bard IVC filters in question including: Bard Recovery filter; the Bard G2 filter; and the Bard G2 Express filter. There is speculation that the number of IVC lawsuits in the MDL will continue to grow. Earlier this year there was the creation of the Cook IVC MDL in Indiana.
The FDA warned Bard last month about misfiling customer complaints including a death due to IVC filters. The FDA also notified Bard about manufacturing the Recovery Cone Removal System without the required clearance or approval. There are reports that the company did not get proper approval for the device and the retrieval of the cones. There were also rumors that there are cleaning issues, but that could not be confirmed at this time. This comes after IVC filter lawsuits have been filed after patients have complained of serious side effects after the filters break. Many patients wait too long to have the devices removed after the threat of blood clots subside. The filters have a tendency to break and then travel to vital organs in the body.
