Beware Long-Term Use of IVC Filters

December 28, 2012

In short-run deployments, scientific evidence strongly suggests that inferior vena cava (IVC) filters successfully perform their intended function of preventing death from a pulmonary embolism. In longer deployments, where patients have an IVC filter in their veins for months or years, the likelihood of an adverse health event rises considerably.


Just like any other mechanical device, IVC filters wear out over time. When your car begins to fail due to wear-and-tear, it’s not usually a problem. On the other hand, when an IVC filter breaks down in your veins, dangerous situations can develop. In some cases, IVC devices have migrated in the blood stream, fractured into smaller pieces, torn blood vessels. As you can imagine, this can create serious health problems.


Are you concerned that an IVC breakdown may have caused some of your current health conditions or those of your loved ones? The attorneys at the Dallas law firm of Fears Nachawati can help you answer this question and many more, particularly whether your medical condition has a legal remedy.
