Life-Saving Device, Life-Threatening Problems

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are amazing. In the short-run, they provide patients with a viable means of measurably limiting their risk to pulmonary emboli and other cardiovascular conditions like deep vein thrombosis.


On the other hand, IVC filters are also problematic. As medical researchers stretch out the time horizon, they’ve found that patients increasingly experience problems related to a malfunction with their IVC filter. In hundreds of separate instances, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that IVC patients have encountered device migration, filter fracture, vena cava perforation, and other potentially life-threatening side effects.


If you’re a patient who has experienced unexpected pain and suffering from your IVC filter, you need to know about this research – and the legal implications it may have for you and your family.
