A transfer order filed Monday, in  the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML), resulted in  all present and future federal product liability lawsuits against inferior vena cava filter (IVC filter) manufacturers, C.R. Bard, Inc. and Bard Peripheral Vascular, Inc. (BPV),  to be centralized in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the District of Arizona.

What Are IVC Filters?

IVC filters are surgical implants that catch blood clots before they travel to the lungs  to avoid causing a pulmonary embolism. The Bard IVC Filter devices are  fracturing, tilting, migrating, or puncturing the vena cava.

FDA Vena Cava Filter Warnings

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a safety warning in 2010, citing that  more than 900 IVC Filter adverse event reports  were filed  over  five years A study published in the April 2013 edition of Jama Internal Medicine, found that less than 10% of retrievable IVC filters surveyed were successfully removed. They also reported that   8% of persons surveyed still suffered venous thrombotic events while the IVC filter was in place. In 2014, the FDA issued an updated warning  to doctors recommending that IVC filters be removed within one to two months once the need for the filter has passed.  They noted that doctors may not have previously been made aware of the urgency surrounding retrieval of the device.

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?

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.
