Bard IVC Filter Lawsuits

Bard IVC Filter Helpline

Simliar to a blood thinner the Bard IVC Filter is designed to capture or reduce the danger of blood clots before the get to the lungs and cause an embolism. Like the blood thinners Pradaxa and Xarelto, the IVC Filters have become the focal point of class action lawsuits for the dangers they present. Once again we have a manufacturer failing to present the dangers of their products.

Bard IVC Filters resulting in  IVC Filter Lawsuits

Patients implanted with these  IVC filters devices   are filing filing lawsuits because  faulty filters have punctured veins, fractured and migrated resulting in severe medical problems and even deaths. Surgeons implant retrievable inferior vena cava filter (IVC) products  into the veins of patients  to prevent blood clots from moving into the patients lungs. The IVC filters catch the blood clots in the blood stream and the clots can dissipate. The FDA has received  hundreds of adverse incident reports about the filters. Complications reported  include: punctured organs, blood vessels and filter migration to different parts of the body.

FDA IVC Filter Warnings

In 2010 a warning  was issued on the filters determing that the filters present risks of filter fracture, filter migration and organ perforation. The warning states that the filter should be removed as soon as the paent’s risk for blood clots subsides. Problem IVC filters are manufactured by C.R. Bard and Cook Group, Inc.

The Filters Presenting Problems Include:

The Bard Recovery filter, The Bard G2 filter, The Bard G2 Express filter.

Dangerous Blood Thinners and Inferior Vena Cava Filters

Like the blood thinners Pradaxa and Xarelto, the filters were prescribed  to prevent  life-threatening  blood clots in the lungs. Just like Pradaxa and Xarelto  they  have life-threatening side effects.  These side effects include: IVC filter perforations, IVC Filter migrations, IVC filter fractures, IVC components  becaming detached. The IVC filters  splinter and send shards of the filter throughout the bloodstream. This complications can be life-threatening.
