What is IVC Filter?

The inferior vena cava or IVC is an important vein that is responsible for carrying blood from the lower body to the heart. When a patient is at high risk of pulmonary embolism or a blockage in one of the arteries in the lungs, an IVC filter which is similar to a spider-like wire is used to be inserted into this vein. The purpose of IVC filer is to prevent blood from forming clots that can go in the heart, lungs, kidney or brain through the bloodstream. It breaks the blood clots. This filter is used for patients who cannot take anticoagulant medication or the medicine that prevents blood from clotting.

Things to Know about IVC Filter Lawsuit

The manufacturers of defective IVC filters have not informed the medical providers about the defects of the device. This leads to the breaking of IVC while the metal pieces break and float around in the bloodstream injuring and damaging other organs. There are also charges for forging the signature in documents for getting approval from the FDA.

If your IVC has been malfunctioning, then the metal fragments are more likely to move through the body injuring the heart, lungs and other organs causing internal bleeding.

Our Cleveland IVC filter lawyer can help you claim damage so that you can get compensation for your further treatment and necessary procedures.

Injuries and Side Effects of IVC Filter
