FDA Reports Serious Problems with IVC Filters

November 20, 2012

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified more than 1,000 adverse events connected to inferior vena cava filters. If you’re an IVC patient who doesn’t know about the risks you face, you should consider contacting the attorneys at Fears Nachawati to learn what you need to know.


IVC filters have an important role to play in the treatment of pulmonary embolism. However, in some cases, the makers of IVC filters have failed to fully state the dangers of these potential harmful devices or the probability that they may harm patients like you.


The law protects patients and victims against manufacturers who understate the risks associated with their products. The definition of "products" is broad enough to include medical devices like IVC filters and, as a result, extends to protect consumers like you.
