Dublin IVC Filter Lawyer
A blood clot that reaches the heart or lungs can be fatal. That’s why there are medical devices that can help filter blood clots and keep patients alive and healthy. One of these devices is called an IVC filter.
IVC filters are small devices that are implanted in the inferior vena cava, which is the main blood vessel running to the heart. These cage-like devices are used to prevent a blood clot in the heart or lungs. They are designed to treat those at risk for pulmonary embolism due to heart attack, stroke, or lung conditions.
However, these filters have a design defect that can cause them to break apart and migrate within the body. These filters can also migrate to the lungs or heart, causing serious injuries and even death.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries from a defective IVC filter, Oliver Law Office can help. Discuss your case with our experienced Dublin IVC filter lawyer today.
Complications of IVC Filters
IVC filters can be dangerous for certain people. Over a five-year period, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received nearly 1,000 reports detailing adverse events related to IVC filters. The most common complaints were device migration, detachment of device components, IVC perforation, and filter fracture. These incidents can cause the following health issues:
- Severe pain in the heart or chest
- Perforation of tissue, vessels, and organs
- Respiratory issues
- Hematoma or nerve injury
- Pulmonary embolism
