IVC Filters: Hundreds of Reported Adverse Events, One Fundamental Problem
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently concluded a five-year review of inferior vena cava (IVC) filters. In their findings, this watch dog federal agency found that IVC patients reported more than nine hundred adverse events, including device migration, filter fracture, vena cava thrombosis, and recurrent pulmonary embolism.
The FDA tied these and other reported side effects to one elemental cause. In case after case, IVC filter remained in a patient’s blood vessels long after this temporary device should have been removed. Unfortunately, however, many patients believe that the maker of this powerful, helpful, and potentially fatal device failed to appropriately or fully communicate the risks associated with IVC filters.
