IVC Filter Lawsuits
As you can see, the IVC Filter side effects can be quite dangerous and would require immediate surgery for removal of splinters or fragments that had broken off of the original filter as well as removal of the filter itself.
IVC Filter Known Dangers
The Archives of Internal Medicine issued a report about these serious medical device defects. The study evaluated 80 patients who received two different types of C.R. IVC filters. Of the 80 patients, 28 received an older model that was available from April 2003 to October 2005. Among that group, 7 experienced filter fractures, a 25% fracture rate. Of the 52 patients who received the newer Bard G2 model, 6 patients experienced a fracture, representing a 12% rate of fracture. The newer model seems to demonstrate an improvement over the older model, however the average fracture rate after the time of implantation is 50 months for patients with the older device compared to 24 months with the filter.
