NOTE: Symptoms are not necessary to file an IVC filter claim. Merely having certain IVC filters implanted can qualify.
Patients who have had IVC filters implanted face a high risk of IVC rupture.
Regardless of whether the filter is implanted properly, filters can move, warp, or tear at the walls of the IVC, rupturing blood vessel. Internal bleeding can occur in the IVC when the lining tears, or it can occur when pieces break off and make tears in the heart or other organs. As of 2010 alone, the FDA has reported 70 inferior vena cava perforations.
One of the biggest concerns for patients is internal bleeding, as it can happen at any time and quickly cause life threatening injuries or death, which is why it is necessary to both contact your medical doctor about your insert and an attorney to insure that you get justice for your claim and compensation for your injuries and medical bills.
When an IVC Filter is implanted, the long spider like legs dig into the walls of the blood vessel to hold it into place. Unfortunately, these devices do not work as intended, and often will break away from the vessel wall sending it into other organs. In 2010 alone, the FDA announced 328 instances of filter migrationa and 146 device detatchments.
Some patients pursuing lawsuits against Bard and Cook have had device migration to the heart, liver, and even as far as causing ruptures in the lungs.
It is important to consult your doctor and an experience attorney to ensure you are best protected from the device inside your body and compensated for your pain, suffering, and medical bills
The long spider-like legs of an IVC filter are often very flimsy, and can break free and cause injury. In one case reported on by NBC News, a mother was rushed to the hospital when a metal shard from the filter broke off and entered her heart. In 2010, the FDA announced a finding of 56 separate filter fractures causing injuries to patients.
Thankfully, after multiple surgeries, she survived. It is important to contact a doctor immediately to insure that you are protected from device fracturing, and to contact an IVC Filter attorney so that you can get compensation for your injuries and high medical bills resulting from the IVC filter
