Cook Medical is one of the major manufacturers of inferior vena cava filters, otherwise known as IVC filters. These devices are inserted into the vena cava vein in patients who are unable to take tradition blood thinning medication. The device can trap blood clots before they are able to cause serious complications, such as pulmonary embolism.
Unfortunately, Cook IVC filters have been linked to serious complications. High rates of device fracture and device migration have been reported with several models made by Cook. When filters break or migrate from their intended location, there is risk of severe internal injuries. Damage to other organs in the body, or perforation of the vena cava vein, are complications that can be extremely dangerous and require additional medical attention.
