What is an IVC Filter?
An inferior vena cava filter, commonly known as an IVC Filter, is a cone shaped device implanted in the inferior vena cava, which is right below the kidneys. This filter was designed for patients who have a risk of pulmonary embolism. The device works by trapping blood clots before they can travel to vital organs such as the lungs or heart and cause life-threatening complications. IVC filters can be implanted both temporarily and permanently.
Manufactures of IVC Filters are being sued because they failed to warn patients and physicians of the risk of migrating, perforated, tilted or fractured devices.
