Why Did the FDA Warn Patients about IVC Filters?
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.
