IVC - Inferior Vena Cava

IVC Filter Lawyers | Shamis & Gentile, P.A.

What are IVC Filters?

IVC (Inferior vena cava) filters are intended to provide a safe method for the prevention of blood clots (pulmonary embolism).

IVC Filters are medical devices that are inserted into the vein to capture these blood clots traveling to the lungs.  There have been concerns raised by the FDS in regards to IVC filters since August 2010.

What IVC Filters have been recalled?

There are many brands that are being reviewed for potential recovery against, among the most common being Bard G2 IVCfilter, Bard Recovery IVC filter (manufactures of the Eclipse brand IVC filter) and Cook IVC filter (manufacturers of the Celect brand IVC filter and Gunther Tulip filter).  These companies failed to adequately warn about the risks of the problems and negligently designed a defective and unreasonably dangerous IVC filter.   It is our opinion that the manufactures will ultimately be forced to pay substantial financial compensation to resolve these cases.

Can IVC Filters cause life-threatening complications?

Potential severe and life-threatening complications resulting from IVC filters include the following:

  1. Punctures of Internal Organs, Veins or Arteries,
  2. Fractures or Broken Filter Components
  3. Tilting or Migration of the Filter
  4. Difficulty removing the IVC filter
  5. Injury to Heart, Lungs, or other Organs
  6. Wrongful Death
