IVC Filter

 
 

Deadly IVC Filter Complications

Originally, IVC filters were designed by doctors as a way to prevent against life-threatening blood clots in the lungs; these blood clots are known as pulmonary embolisms. In 2005, hundreds of reports that IVC filters were malfunctioning, migrating, fracturing (splintering off in the lungs), perforating, and actually causing embolisms lead to an inundation of Class Action lawsuits being filed with the FDA against the manufacturers of these deadly devices.
