Bard IVC Filter Injuries
Posted in the Hematology Forum
#1 Aug 15, 2012
Comprehensive research of IVC filers produced by Bard, Crux , Cook Medical , and Boston Scientific over the last seven years coupled with the reports made by physicians and consumers, has prompted the FDA to urge physicians recommending an IVC filter to think twice . The FDA has told physicians to consider the risk and benefits for individual patients instead of simply choosing the IVC for all patients who are ineligible for anticoagulation therapy, and to remove the device once the symptoms have diminished.
The dangers and side effects caused by IVC Filters, especially those manufactured by Bard, will likely result in lawsuits. These lawsuits will stem from the IVC device:
Migrating from its initial implantation location
Embolizing, or breaking and entering the blood stream of the patient
Perforating the patientís veins
Fracturing and traveling throughout the bloodstream
These defects are often not manifested by any symptoms in patients which makes identification of the problem very difficult .
