Is Organ Perforation An IVC Filter Risk?

Medical studies have indicated a possible link between IVC filters and organ perforation. Multiple patients who were implanted with IVC filters in their inferior vena cava have reported filter migration or filter fracture. This can lead to the filter or components damaging surrounding organs or even the IVC vein itself. Perforation of internal organs is a serious, dangerous problem and major cause for concern. Frequently, patients need to undergo surgery and extended hospitalization to correct the issue.

In the event that you or a loved one received an IVC filter implant and subsequently suffered from organ perforation or any other related complication, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the makers of the device. Several lawsuits have already been filed by patients with more expected to follow in the near future. Settlements in these cases are expected to be substantial due to the seriousness of the injuries caused. There are deadlines to file defective drug lawsuits, so it is important for you to act quickly and contact a lawyer regarding your situation.
