Fragmenting Filters Threaten Consumers

January 14, 2013

If you’re an IVC filter patient, there’s a threat you may never have appropriately considered: the possibility of fragmentation. Tragically, fragmenting filters have cost not only thousands of dollars in added health care expenses, but have threatened the lives of hundreds of patients.


Medical devices should be safe. If they aren’t perfectly safe, then they should come with clear, detailed warnings. Sadly, some IVC filters weren’t appropriately safe, and patients weren’t sufficiently warned. As a result, a distressing number of consumers let their IVC filters remain in their blood vessels for far too long – and with painful and harmful results.
