IVC Filter Vena Cava Perforation Lawsuit

ivc filter migration lawsuitsIVC – inferior vena cava – filters, have received heightened attention lately as allegations of dangerous, life threatening complications have arisen. Among these complications, one of the most prominent is the risk of vena cava perforation.

The inferior vena cava is one of the main veins that is tasked with transporting blood from the heart to the lower half of the body. IVC filters are implanted into this vein in order to capture blood clots before they are able to spread throughout the body. Typically, these devices are used on those who are unable to take traditional blood thinning medication. When functioning properly, these filters are able to prevent pulmonary embolisms; but IVC filters have been known to migrate from their original implanted location. When migration occurs, the device can be rendered ineffective and its sharp edges can penetrate and damage surrounding organs. Multiple reports of vena cava perforation have been reported from patients who have received IVC filter implants.
