Cook Group Inc. is one of the two medical device companies that is currently being investigated by our legal team for faulty IVC filter manufacturing. The Celect Platinum Vena Cava Filter is one of Cook’s main product filter models. Since being introduced to the market, both consumers and medical professionals have reported that the device is prone to failing, leading to serious medical complications.
About Cook Celect Platinum Vena Cava Filters
The Cook Celect Platinum Vena Cava Filter was designed as a temporary filter to prevent pulmonary embolisms in those who are unable to take standard blood thinning medication. Although designed to maintain rigidness and stability, the filter is prone to fail due to production errors.
Filter failure carries several complications, the main ones being filter fracture, filter migration, and perforation of the vena cava. Each of these complications leads to serious health risks that require immediate medical attention. The Cook Celect Vena Cava Filter’s information packet details the placement and structure of the device, however, reports serve to contradict the effectiveness of the filter.
Cook Celect IVC Filter Complications
Recent reports have identified serious complications associated with Cook Celect IVC filters. These include:
- Filter fracture
- Filter migration
- Filter breaking
- Filter tilting
- Vena cava perforation
In the past, the FDA has issued two safety communications regarding reported complications associated with using IVC filters. They intended to warn consumers and doctors about the potential complications and side-effects of temporary IVC filters. The last communication was delivered in 2014 as an amendment to a previous communication. The communication insisted that IVC filters must be removed from patients between the 29th and 54th day after installation.
