Hundreds of IVC Adverse Events Tell Grim Truth

In a five-year period, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recorded hundreds of adverse events associated with inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. This statistic is distressing for many current and former IVC patients not simply because of what it means for others, but because of what it might mean for them, too.


Importantly, most IVC patients do not have a problem with adverse events like device migration, vein perforation, or filter fracture. Nevertheless, a statistically significant minority has reported problems with their IVC device – as well as the larger problem of not being told about the risks they could face.


IVC filters are more risky than you might realize. Moreover, these powerful and potentially harmful devices may cause – or may have already caused – personal injury to you or your loved ones.
