What Are IVC Filters?
IVC filters are placed in individuals who have deep vein thrombosis in their legs to prevent blood clots that break off from traveling to the heart, lungs and brain.
The Bard's Recovery IVC Filter and G2 IVC Filter System were approved for sale via the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's (FDA) 510(k) protocols. C. R. Bard removed the Recovery IVC from the market in 2005, but it is believed that there are still devices implanted in people. The G2, which was the replacement for the Recovery, is still being used.
What Ia The Concerns?
Retrievable IVC filter implants have been fracturing and migrating. Usually the fractured portions of the device migrate to the heart and lungs. Fragments of IVC filters can also migrate to other organs. The metal fragments from a retrievable IVC filter have migrated to the heart, lungs or another organ. The resulting injury is bleeding, severe pain, and further embolism.
In August 2010, the FDA issued an advisory in response to the noted adverse incident reports.
