IVC Filter Lawsuits
Representation from Salt Lake City Mass Tort Attorneys
The IVC is the vein that carries blood from the lower body to the heart. An IVC filter is a small filter that is inserted into this vein, in order to help protect the lungs, brain, and heart from blood clots. This procedure was designed to help patients who couldn’t receive blood-thinning therapies. Instead of providing an answer to the problem, the IVC filter itself became a hazard.

Problems Associated with IVC Filters
IVC filters have extremely high fracture rates, especially among retrievable IVC filters – filters that are designed only for short-term use and protection. The longer that a patient has an IVC filter, the greater the chance of injury to the patient. In many cases, the IVC filter may break and cause fragments to move to the lungs, heart, or other nearby organs.
A fractured IVC filter may cause the following, and more:
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Filter Fracture or Migration
- Vein Perforation or Blockage
- Buildup of Fluids
- Internal Bleeding
- Sudden Death
Although a major IVC filter manufacturer has redesigned its filters, its safety is still in question.
