Did You Suffer Complications After An IVC Filter Surgery? 

IVC Filter

Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) filters, devices used in the prevention of pulmonary embolism, may cause dangerous, life-threatening complications. If you had a temporary or permanent IVC filter implanted and suffered from health problems, you could be entitled to compensation.

Complications associated with IVC filters include:

  • Filter migration
  • An increased risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • “Cardiac tamponade,” a life-threatening condition that occurs when excess fluid or blood puts pressure on the heart muscle
  • Punctures in the inferior vena cava wall, the heart or lungs
  • Internal bleeding caused by perforations
  • Blood vessel swelling or nerve injury where the filter punctures the body
  • Continuous pain radiating throughout the body from the heart and the chest
  • Respiratory distress caused by a pulmonary embolus or a blocked lung artery
  • Infection caused by insertion at a compromised site
  • Other catastrophic injuries or death

If you had an IVC filter implanted and developed health problems, or if a loved one died due to complications from this device, you may have a case. Contact our attorneys and let us put you on the right path to getting the compensation you deserve.
