Cook Gunther Tulip IVC Filter

The Gunther Tulip IVC filter has been offered in the United States since 2000 – FDA approval in 2003 – and is known as one of Cook Medicals retrievable, “optional” filters. In the Gunther Tulip being an optional filter, a medical professional may remove it when the risk of a pulmonary embolism has passed or can determine it should be kept in as a permanent device. The filter is made of a unique blend of metals formed into an umbrella shape in order to block clots while allowing blood to flow through the vena cava. In 2010, the FDA issued a device warning calling for the filter to not be used as a permanent device, with an update in 2014 calling for removal between day 29 and 54 of installation.
