About IVC Filters
IVC filters are wire devices that are implanted in the largest vein in the body. They are designed to prevent blood clots in the lungs, also known as a pulmonary embolism. The problem is that IVC filters themselves pose life-threatening risks, especially when short-term IVC filters are not retrieved as soon as they are no longer necessary.
The FDA has issued multiple warnings about filter migration, fracture, embolization of broken pieces to vital organs, vein perforation, Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), problems retrieving IVC filters, and other risks. Thousands of people have filed lawsuits against manufacturers for selling defective devices and failing to warn about side effects and The Law Offices of Ben C. Martin represents a number of these individuals.
