What is the FDA’s Position on IVC Filters?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is committed to helping protect American consumers from risky or dangerous medical products. Having reviewed the characteristics of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters and received hundreds of adverse event reports from patients, the FDA has taken to cautioning health care professionals and patients to seriously weigh the risks and benefits of IVC products.


Unfortunately, many patients made decisions about whether to use an IVC filter to combat their potential pulmonary embolism without receiving all the information they needed to make a well-informed choice. In particular, the makers of IVC products may have failed to appropriately caution consumers about the possibility that their product had the potential to migrate in the blood stream or perforate blood vessels.


If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of your IVC filter, you may have a valid and viable legal claim against the maker of this device. What might you receive in a damage award?
