What amount of IVC Filters fail, and why?

A study by Dr. William Nicholson in Pennsylvania conducted follow up appointments with 80 patients who previously had IVC filters implanted. His findings were disturbing. They found that IVC filter fragmentation and embolization occurred in:

  • 25% of those who used the Bard Recovery filter
  • 12% of those who sued the Bard G2 filter
  • Fractures generally occurred roughly 37 months after implantation
  • Experts estimate that nearly 7,000 Americans have unknown fragmentation that could cause serious problems at any time, without warning. In fact, one of the patients in the study actually died suddenly after completing the study, likely from the relatively minor chest pain and heart problems he was experiencing.

Like the FDA statement, the study concluded that the potential for fracture was directly related to the time that the IVC filter remained in the body.

What should I do if I’ve developed Negative Side effects after using an IVC Filter?

Several lawsuits have begun, alleging that the IVC manufacturers knew or should have known about the potential dangers of IVC filters, particularly as a long-term solution. A number of multidistrict litigation IVC filter lawsuits are currently pending across the United States. The cases allege that the devices are dangerous and that patients and medical professionals were not adequately warned of these dangers.

In fact, in one case against the Bard, there is evidence that Bard’s research indicated that there was an unreasonable danger to patients of device fracture. Bard allegedly did not show the results of this study to the FDA nor do anything to correct the potential issues. Instead, they continued to sell and market the potentially defective device while they designed a new, more effective version. This desire to place profits ahead of public safety is unacceptable.

If you or a loved one has an IVC filter implanted, it is best to speak to a medical professional about the risk associated with keeping the device in your body. If your heightened risk of PE has passed, it may be time to remove the device. Talk to your doctor about the specifics of your individual situation.

How can a Lawyer help my IVC Filter Lawsuit Case?

Drug Companies are massive and powerful corporations that can lobby members of Congress on their behalf to get medicines and equipment like IVC Filters approved by the FDA. Taking on these companies by yourself can be a daunting endeavor, but when you have a IVC Filter lawsuit attorney on your team, the fight is winnable. The Laws surrounding how IVC Filters are made, the clinical trials that must be used to prove they are effective and safe, and how the IVC Filters are marketed can be confusing because they are often purposely made so. When pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies write the laws that are supposed to govern drugs and equipment like an IVC Filter, they write the laws so that they are protected from most types of lawsuits, and so that they can reap as much profit as possible. The average St. Louis and Missouri citizens will not know these laws and won’t be able to effectively use them to fight an IVC Filter lawsuit case of this level. This is why hiring a lawyer with experience in trying IVC Filter lawsuit cases is so important.
