Representing Victims of the Medical Device IVC Filter for Serious Side Effects

IVC filters are medical devices which were designed to prevent blood clots. They are implanted to stop blood clots from traveling throughout the body and to prevent strokes. The filters were designed to be placed in the human body for only a limited period of time, however, many are implanted in emergency rooms and the surgeons will not see their patients again, increasing the likelihood that an IVC filter will remain in place for too long. This is dangerous because the likelihood of splintering increases the longer the device remains in the body. Additionally, the filters can only be removed successfully in about half of cases. Many people have suffered through multiple surgeries to correct problems with this device.

If you or a loved one has suffered from side effects due to the use of an IVC Filter, you should contact The Law Offices of Calcagno & Associates today to find out how we can help you collect monetary compensation for your pain and suffering.

Potential IVC Filter Complications

An IVC filter is a device that is implanted in the large vein in the abdomen in people who are at risk of developing blood clots or have been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis. The IVC filter is implanted to catch blood clots that have broken up and are traveling in the bloodstream before they reach the heart or lungs and potentially lead to serious complications. Due to hundreds of reports of unwanted side effects and complications, the FDA has recommended that doctors remove the IVC filter once the threat of blood clots has disappeared.

Common IVC Filter Devices Include:

  • ALN Implants Recoverable ALN filter
  • Angiotech Option Vena Cava Filter
  • B. Braun Venatech Filters
  • Boston Scientific Greenfield Filter
  • Bard IVC Filters, including the Bard Recovery filter, Bard G2 filter, Simon Nitinol Filter, and the Bard G2 Express filter
  • Cook Medical Celect Vena Cava Filter
