Basis of the IVC Filter Lawsuit
In May, 2014 the FDA warned physicians that the delayed removal of a retrievable IVC filter may cause medical complications. Also, reports suggest a leading IVC filter manufacturer may have withheld its device’s known risks of heart, lung, and vein damage from potential patients.
IVC Filter manufacturers involved
Three of the companies named in various IVC filter cases across the country are Boston Scientific, C.R. Bard, and Cook Medical. If you or a loved one had one of these particular IVC filters implanted you should speak to your doctor about whether you are a candidate for removal as soon as possible.
