The Cook Celect IVC filter is one of two retrievable, “optional” filters offered by Cook Medical. This specific model has been offered to patients in the United States since 2007 – being implanted into thousands of patients since – with FDA approval coming in 2008. It can be potentially removed by a medical professional if it is determined that the risk of a pulmonary embolism has passed, or can remain in the patient as a permanent device. Cook Celect filters have an umbrella-like shape comprised of a special composition of metals that allows clots to be trapped while still allowing blood to flow through the vena cava.
However, serious complications related to the Cook Celect IVC filter have been discovered. If you or a loved one have suffered complications due to this model, you are encouraged to contact our legal team as you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against Cook Medical. The complications associated with this IVC filter includes:
- Vena cava perforation
- Filter fracture
- Filter migration
- Filter tilting
- Filter breaking
