How Safe Is Your Vascular Filter?

December 6, 2012

For thousands of patients, an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter, a type of vascular filter, has been successfully used to prevent pulmonary emboli. By preventing a vein blockage and blood clots, these filters protect patients from potentially fatal health effects.

 

Over a longer period of time, however, an IVC filter can be harmful rather than beneficial. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), prolonged use of IVC filters can result in device-related problems, such as device migration, perforation of the vena cava, and filter fracture. Sadly, in many cases, patients and health care professionals weren’t sufficiently warned about these possibilities and failed to take proper precautions as a result.

 

Have you or a loved one suffered from a poor health outcome as a result of your IVC filter? You may have a legal claim against the maker, distributor, and marketer of this health care product. To find out about your rights under the law and how to present your claims, talk to the attorneys and dedicated professionals at Fears Nachawati.
