IVC Filter Alert

Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are retrievable devices used to prevent blood clots from traveling to the lungs. They are implanted into the veins of patients who can’t take anticoagulants. The filters capture clots in the bloodstream and dissolve them before they can move to the lungs.

Since IVC filters arrived on the market, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received hundreds of complaints of complications including punctured organs and device migration.

Five filters in particular are now at the center of many lawsuits:

  • Bard Recovery Filter
  • Bard G2 Filter
  • Bard G2 Express Filter
  • Cook Gunther Tulip Filter
  • Cook Celect Filter

These lawsuits claim poor design, manufacturing, and failure to warn of risks.
