IVC Filters are blood clot devices manufactured by C.R. Bard, Cook, and others. These devices carry a risk of breaking and causing organ damage and internal bleeding. Litigation against C.R. Bard, Cook and others claims that the manufacturers failed to sufficiently warn consumers and medical professionals of this risk and may have concealed information about the dangers of these filters in order to get them approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

The IVC filter is a wire device used to stop blood clots from forming in a patient’s inferior vena cava (IVC) in cases where the individual is at a high risk for pulmonary embolism. The spider-like device is implanted in the patient’s vein to “catch” blood clots before they enter the patient’s lungs, heart, or brain. Unfortunately, the IVC device has been known to fall out of place or to break apart, which can lead to pieces of the medical device entering the bloodstream and potentially puncturing a vein wall and causing organ damage and internal bleeding. In addition, the IVC filter may even cause blood clots at the insertion site.
Some of the reported injuries are extremely dangerous and even, in some cases, fatal. These injuries, side effects, and complications include:
