Life-Threatening Dangers Caused by Defective IVC Filters:

Life-Threatening Dangers Caused by Defective IVC Filters By  Bertram & Graf , L.L.C .

What is an IVC Implant?:

What is an IVC Implant? An IVC filter looks like a collection of thin, metal fishhooks. It is implanted into the inferior vena cava – the large vein that carries deoxygenated or “used” blood back to the heart – with the use of the hooks, allowing it to stay in place and cling to any blood clots that otherwise would have entered the heart with possibly fatal results . There are a few symptoms, however, that can be indicative of issues with an IVC filter: Sharp and sudden chest pain Waves of nausea Strong neck pain or neck stiffness Stroke

How a Defective IVC Filter Harms the Patient:

How a Defective IVC Filter Harms the Patient Problems arise, however, when a defective IVC filter starts to slip out of place. The metal hooks used to fashion the filter to the vein tear or perforate it, which can cause severe internal bleeding and ultimately death . Some IVC filters have even been known to break apart while inside a patient. The small metal fragments of the filter can also cut the inside of the vein, causing interior bleeding. Worst still, the fragments can travel into the heart, causing life-threatening ruptures or triggering a heart attack. A faulty IVC filter can result in a variety of injuries, including: Metal fragments in the blood Internal bleeding Chest pain Nausea Neck pain Pulmonary embolism Stroke Death
