BOWLING GREEN, Kent. — Boston Scientific and Cook Medical have been named as the defendants in recently filed IVC filter lawsuits, on the grounds that their devices were defective and led to serious health complications in consumers, according to the Legal Reader.
Each company is facing its own lawsuit, but both are being held responsible for their defective products due to alleged product negligence.
The lawsuits cite Boston Scientific’s Greenfield Vena Cava Filter and the Cook Celect Vena Cava Filter, claiming the devices themselves were defective as even when physicians followed guidelines and instructions, the device was prone to failure.
This has led the FDA to warn consumers of long-term IVC use with over 900 adverse event reports being filed since 2005.
The plaintiff against Boston Scientific claims she experienced thigh and abdomen pain as well as clotting after her IVC Filter was implanted. After reporting her pains, it was discovered that her filter became occluded (blocked) which will force her to stay on blood thinners for the rest of her life.
Cook Medical’s lawsuit was filed by a plaintiff claiming extensive chronic pain in her lower body resulting from a defective IVC filter. Upon investigation, it was determined that the platiniffs filter had tilted, allowing a major clot to from near her lungs and forcing her to be put on long-term anticoagulation therapy (blood thinners).
