Video of IVC Filter Complications
This is a video animation of the process of inserting an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter. It also demonstrates how this filter can cause a series of complications. Many patients who undergo this surgery have experienced negative effects. One study mentions that 25% of these patients experience a fracture of their device. Pieces of the IVC break off and migrate through the body. In fact 71% of those devices that fracture eventually migrate to the heart thus causing life threatening symptoms such as rapid heartbeat, buikldup of fluid, and in some cases death.
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented numerous families who are the victims of the dangerous and life threatening effects from the IVC filter. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these problems because of an implanted or removed IVC filter, we encourage you to consult with one of our IVC Filter attorneys as soon as possible. A successful civil claim that is pursued against the responsible party will ensure the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will hopefully compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work. Further questions can be directed to the Fears Nachawati Law Firm by emailing the lead IVC Filter lawyer, Majed Nachawati at email@example.com, or by calling our office at 1.866.705.7584.
