IVC Filter Vena Cava Peforation Lawsuits

ivc filter vena cava perforation lawsuitsOur IVC filter lawyers are investigating claims involving Vena Cava perforation caused by a defective filter. The Inferior Vena Cava is one of the large veins in the heart that carries deoxygenated blood from the body into the right atrium of the heart. It is an incredibly important vein that is responsible for carrying blood from the lower half of the body to the heart. This is the location that IVC filters are placed in order to catch blood from clotting and prevent complications such as a pulmonary embolism.

However, there have been reports that the IVC filters can cause perforations in the inferior vena cava after it has been implanted. Depending on the type of perforation, this can be extremely dangerous and life-threatening. In many cases of vena cava perforation, surgery may be required to remove the filter and repair the damaged areas.
