IVC FILTER MIGRATION LAWSUITS
The attorneys at TheLawFirm.com have learned that certain IVC devices may be prone to ‘migration’. As we have written about, IVC filters are inserted into the inferior vena cava, the largest vein in the human body. After implantation, these devices catch blood clots before they could continue through the vein into the lungs. For some patients, these devices proved to be an effective method for preventing deadly pulmonary embolisms.
So what is migration? That is where an IVC filter dislodges itself and moves, or ‘migrates’. Migration has been one of the most common complaints about the IVC filter. Migration is dangerous because the device can migrate to the heart, lungs or other organs.
If this happens with a major organ, internal bleeding, exceptional pain, and even death can occur.
TheLawFirm.com has learned that the C.R. Bard Recovery, C.R. Bard G2 model and the Gunther Tulip and Celect model made by Cook Medical are most at risk for failure.
The lawsuits that have been filed basically allege that these companies failed to warn consumers of the devices’ potential risks. It is also alleged that some of the designs themselves were defective.
If you had an IVC filter made by C.R. Bard or Cook Medical, and suffered adverse effects, calls TheLawFirm.com for a free and confidential assessment.
