IVC Patients: Act before Fracture

February 5, 2013

Patients whose blood vessels carry an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter may want to speak with their physician about the longer-term risks of their IVC medical product. The simple, tragic reality associated with IVC filters is that they wear down over time; when they wear down they threaten to break apart.


Fractured IVC filters are at very real risk of migrating. As a result, an IVC migration can relocate IVC filter components to a patient’s heart or lungs. These unintended consequences can, in turn, lead to serious injury, including hemorrhage, pain, perforations, and even death.


The lawyers at the firm of Fears Nachawati are prepared to advise you as you consider your options if you’ve experienced an IVC filter migration. Many consumers worry that the manufacturer knew more about this dangerous possibility than they let on. For impacted patients, that’s not right.
