Blood clot filters are devices that are implanted into the body to stop blood clots from causing problems, such as a pulmonary embolism. These blood clot filters are known as inferior vena cava filters, or IVC filters, because they are inserted into the large vein that transports blood to the lower section of the body, the vena cava vein. Doctors often recommend these types of filters for patients who are unable to take traditional blood thinning medication. However, recent information has indicated that these blood clot filters are causing serious and life threatening conditions in some individuals.
