For patients enduring the threat of pulmonary embolism (PE) an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter can be an important way of mitigating the risks of PE. In fact, clinical studies have found that IVCs have been highly effective in accomplishing this goal.
IVCs aren’t without risks, however. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has made clear that a statistically significant number of IVCs malfunctioned after prolonged use. In general, IVCs failed by moving or breaking apart in the body and, as a result, travelling through the blood stream and causing serious harm.
The harms of an IVC failure are serious, and the more troubling legal reality is that these medical devices may have been improperly designed or produced. Consumers of health care deserve better than faulty and dangerous products. If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of an IVC failure, it may be time to find out who is responsible for your family’s pain and suffering.
