Inferior vena cava (IVC) filters are medical devices that were designed to prevent blood clots from traveling to the lungs and causing a pulmonary embolism. However, the problem that many patients have faced with this device is that it can become so deeply embedded that they can no longer be removed. Other issues include left behind shards, punctured organs, and other serious injuries.
DANGERS LURKING BEHIND IVC FILTER USAGE
Some of the most prominent IVC filter manufacturers are Bard, Cook, and Argon Medical Devices. We often see these companies focusing more on their revenue than the safety of their devices or the health of patients. If you have encountered any of these side effects, seek medical and legal help:
- Fractured pieces that puncture the heart, lungs, or inferior vena cava
- Migration of the device
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Punctured organs, veins, or tissues
- Blood clots clogging the filter
- Inability to remove the filter
- Constant chest pain
- Respiratory problems
- Uncontrollable bleeding
- Fluid forming around the heart (cardiac tamponade)
- Shards left in the organs
Others problems that patients have faced with IVC filters include migration of the device to other parts of the body and blood clots in the lower extremities. Inadequate devices and/or negligence in the manufacturing of the device, can often be blamed in these types of cases. Either the device has not been fully tested to discover safety issues or there is a deficiency in design or production.
In some cases, we may investigate further into whether or not these companies were aware of the dangers and whether or not they knowingly or negligently put patients at risk. Whatever the case may be, identifying negligence should be left up to the expertise of an Atlanta injury attorney who knows how to navigate complex medical device cases.

D. Nicole Mims
I was involved in a vehicle accident August 15, 2012. When the accident happened I called another large firm in the Atlanta area. Eventually my case was referred to Mr. Jason Schneider. Once Mr. Schneider received my case everything began to change and I felt like he was working in my favor. Mr. Schneider did an excellent job of dealing with the insurance company and getting them to pay what was owed to me. Mr. Schneider helped me when my situation became an emergency. He made sure I understood what would happen with my case financially if I went ahead with the emergency surgery. The surgery would basically take all the money that the insurance would pay and I may still owe some money. In the end I was surprised to receive an email a year later saying that I had a checking waiting for me at Mr. Schneider’s office. I had completely accepted the fact that I would not receive anything but my back would be somewhat better. If you are searching for an attorney who is going to work in your favor and make sure you know what’s going on with your case I suggest you call Mr. Jason Schneider right now.
