The lawsuit was filed by Tonya N. L., a woman from Iowa who was implanted with the Option™ ELITE Retrievable Inferior Vena Cava Filter (“IVC Filter”) manufactured by Argon Medical Devices Inc. and Rex Medical, L.P.

The IVC Filter was implanted in her vein to catch blood clots and prevent a pulmonary embolism on May 18, 2015 at ACH Immanuel Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska by Dr. C. Christian Schlaepfer.

The plaintiff underwent 2 unsuccessful medical procedures in an attempt to remove the IVC Filter at ACH Immanuel Medical Center on June 24, 2016 by Dr. Michael R. Schuster.

She is seeking compensation for injuries related to her IVC Filter becoming embedded in her vein, tilted, and multiple unsuccessful retrieval surgeries.
