Dangerous Migration, Embolism, and Perforation of the Bard IVC Filter

December 17, 2013

The IVC filter is a device used when anticoagulation drugs have little to no effect on patients. They are usually used in cases where the patient has venous thromboembolic disease or for patients with high risk of pulmonary embolism. The device is supposed to help prevent blood clots by trapping them before they can move through the body. It works as a net, inserted into the blood veins and trapping clots that flow into it. This device which seems helpful has been seen to hurt patients more than it helps. The device has been seen to migrate, break, and/or perforate internal tissues or organs. Specifically the Bard IVC filters have shown these dangerous side effects.
