If you or someone you know developed life threatening complications caused by the inferior vena cava filter (IVC filter), our network of experienced lawyers are ready to help fight for you. You do not have to pay anything until your case is settled.
An IVC filter is a type of vascular filter, a medical device that is implanted by interventional radiologists or vascular surgeons into the inferior vena cava to presumably prevent life threatening pulmonary emboli (PEs). IVC filter is a small cone-shaped device that is implanted in the inferior vena cava just below the kidneys. The filter is designed to capture an embolism, a blood clot that has broken loose from one of the deep veins in the legs on its way to the heart and lungs.
IVC filters have been known to cause serious injuries to patients due to:
- Fracturing of the IVC Filter
- Movement Throughout the Body
- Pierce Blood Vessels and Organs
- Become Irretrievable
