Why Did the FDA Warn Patients about IVC Filters?

November 16, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned health care professionals and consumers recently about the tendency for inferior vena cava (IVC) filters to cause serious, unexpected harm to patients. In a five-year period, victims of IVC product failures encountered nearly 1,000 adverse health outcomes. The ways that IVC filters broke down were distressingly varied and included devices migrating in the blood stream and perforating blood vessels.

 

Was your loved one affected by a flawed IVC filter? As you may know, the maker of IVCs is responsible for fully warning patients about the risks of their products, including the possibility that an IVC filter could cause serious injury. If you’re ready to find out how your rights may have been adversely impacted by an IVC product flaw, talk to the attorneys and dedicated professionals at Fears Nachawati today.
