IVC Filter

Inferior vena cava filters, or IVC Filters, are devices that are inserted into the vena cava (which is the main vessel returning blood from the lower half of the body to the heart) in order to prevent blood clots from reaching the lungs. IVC Filters are generally implanted in patients who are at risk of pulmonary embolism. A pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot reaches your lungs and cause blockage of a lung artery In May 2014, the FDA issued an industry wide initial safety communication expressing concern over retrievable IVC filters, those intended for short-term placement. Specifically, the FDA expressed concern over retrievable filters not being removed once the risk of a pulmonary embolism subsides. Long term risks associated with retrievable filters include but are not limited to filter migration, fracture of the filter itself, perforation or puncturing of the vena cava and surrounding organs, and embedment of the filer. The IVC filter attorneys at The Kell Law Firm are actively investigating and pursuing claims against the manufacturers of such devices. The Kell Law Firm currently represents individuals injured by IVC devices. If you believe you have experienced an injury or loss due to an IVC filter, please contact the Kell Law Firm at (636) 757-1700!
