Texas Medical Product Side Effect Injury Lawyers | Injuries Caused by the Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filter
If you or someone you love are at risk of suffering a blood clot in your lungs, known medically as a pulmonary embolism, your doctor may have recommended that you have an IVC filter implant. The IVC filter is typically inserted using a catheter through a small incision in your neck or groin and is designed to prevent any clot that develops from making its way to your lungs. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a significant number of patients who have receive an IVC filter have reported adverse side effects. If you or someone you love has suffered injury because of an IVC filter implant, the attorneys at Bailey & Galyen can help.

Full and Fair Compensation for Injuries Caused by an IVC Filter
The FDA has reported a substantial number of complications in patients who have received an IVC filter, including instances where:
- The IVC filter moved after insertion
- The filter broke after insertion
- The filter was torn or compromised
- Components of the filter detached from the unit
The common consensus within the medical community is that most of the injuries stemming from the IVC filter resulted because the device remained implanted longer than necessary. To date, though, the ability to retrieve an IVC filter is very limited, as the filters become overgrown with cells within a period of about three weeks.
